CFUW’s Delegation to the 67th Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW)
Participating in UNCSW is the primary opportunity for CFUW to contribute to global dialogue regarding the status of women within the United Nations framework. It is also provides a platform for meeting with our international partners and an opportunity to influence domestic policy as Federal Ministers are in attendance at the session.
The sixty-seventh session of the Commission on the Status of Women will take place from 6-17 March 2023 and will consider the priority theme of “Innovation and technological change, and education in the digital age for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.” The session will also review the agreed conclusions of the sixty-second session, “Challenges and opportunities in achieving gender equality and the empowerment of rural women and girls” This year the sessions at the UN will be “in person” with the NGO parallel sessions, hybrid.
CFUW will be attending in person as well as hosting an in-person parallel event during the first week of CSW March 6-10 (most delegates will choose to arrive the weekend before.) It is exciting to be able to return to the United Nations again and an opportunity that we wish all our members could experience. However, even if you are unable to attend in person, all NGO virtual parallel events are open to the public. You do not need to be a CFUW delegate to participate.
