The upcoming sixty-first Commission on the Status of Women welcomes the theme “Women’s Economic Empowerment in the Changing World of Work”. The Working Group on Girls is proud to invite girls to join us for the CSW61 Teen Orientation for March 12th! This interactive program provides a space for teen and youth delegates to prepare and strategize for effective advocacy during the CSW61.
The CSW61 Teen Orientation is a great opportunity to allow our youth to connect and interact with UN Women and beyond at a pivotal age. Teen delegates will also consider current efforts to advance the human rights of girls and learn how to effectively navigate CSW 61. The program strives to inspire and instigate our youth and to assure that our delegates feel empowered, connected, and knowledgeable throughout the 61st Commission on the Status on Women.
The event will be on March 12th, 2017 from 9:00am-5:00pm at the United Nations Headquarters. Pre-Registration is required! We ask to please RSVP before Friday, February 10th through the following link.
