CFUW delegation returns from a successful week at UN CSW 61
CFUW sent a delegation of 20 members to attend the 61st United Nations Commission on the Status of Women in New York last week. For two week in March every year, organizations from around the world converge on New York City to attend the Commission. States and organizations host events and share the work they have been doing on women’s equality.
This year, CFUW hosted a Parallel Event at the Armenian Cultural Centre on March 16th. Four speakers, including two CFUW Vice Presidents and representatives from the YWCA, discussed women, mentorship and the changing world of work. You can see the poster for the event here. In addition, CFUW was given the opportunity to make an oral statement. Due to unforeseen weather conditions, the oral statement was delayed until the second week. As our delegates had departed, a close colleague from OECTA, delivered it on our behalf. Read our oral statement here.
