The United Nations (UN) defines Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs) as a not-for-profit voluntary citizen’s group that is organized on a local, national or international level to address issues in support of the public good. Salamatova created The Ukrainian Women in the UN Project in an effort to expand the participation of Ukrainian women in UN activities and to harness the power of what women can accomplish when they work together. Salamatova spoke about the work she has been doing since the organizations founding in 2017. She spoke about gender balance, the importance of partnering with women, and ways in which the organization has received pushback. Salamatova then answered questions from the group.
