Upcoming Events in Marin County

UN Day – United Nations 75th Anniversary

Sunday, October 25th, 2020 3:00 – 4:30

Join us to reflect on the 75th anniversary of the United Nations and hear from our keynote speaker, Titi Sonekan!

Titi serves as the Director of Finance for the UN Foundation. She is an entrepreneur and had worked for various types of organizations – for-profit and non-profit, in leadership financial roles as Director of Finance, Controller, and Chief Financial Officer.

We will be focusing on the role the United Nations has played in global efforts in the past, where it stands today, and the place we hope it will occupy in the future. We will also be discussing how we can all work to incorporate the mission of the United Nations directly in our communities.
