NGO Committee on the Status of Women
NGO CSW facilitates a platform for the voices and leadership of feminists and women’s rights organizations globally who lobby for their inclusion in the UN deliberations in pursuit of gender equality.
NGO CSW ensures that the voices and leadership of feminist and women’s rights organizations all over the world are included in UN deliberations such as the annual Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). We facilitate the largest gathering of civil society at the UN in support of women by hosting 10,000 women from around the world, coordinating and scheduling their 400 parallel events.
NGO CSW hosts a two-week NGO Forum, where activists gather from around the world to discuss issues pertaining to women and girls, to network, share strategies/best practices and to lobby governments at the CSW. We also conduct advocacy trainings, prepare an orientation, offer spaces to exchange and collaborate, and host regional caucus discussions.
NGO CSW holds monthly meetings featuring NGOs, UN, and government speakers, promote a gender perspective at the UN and other international meetings, publish reports analyzing UN processes and meetings through a gender lens, have a young professional’s program, and facilitate an internship program.
