About the event

We are thrilled to announce the very first in-person Nigeria Social Norms Conference with the theme “Norms Shifting: Innovating Health, Education, and Gender Equality”. The conference will have a curated lineup of sessions, engaging workshops, and thought-provoking discussions for catalyzing social norms evidence, fueling effective program implementation, and sparking vital conversations on gender and social norms.

This conference will serve as an open forum to bridge the gap between implementers, pioneering researchers, impassioned donors, and visionary policymakers in the field. We extend a warm invitation to you – whether you’re a trailblazer in your field, a student with fresh insights, a policymaker shaping the future, or an advocate for change. The Nigeria Social Norms Conference is your canvas to contribute, connect, and catalyze the evolution of norms, transforming societies for generations to come.

Mark your calendar, rally your peers, and prepare to be part of an unprecedented gathering that sparks not just conversations, but a movement towards a world redefined by progressive norms.
