AnitaB.org at NGO Commission on the Status of Women Forum, New York

March 19, 2019 · 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Join AnitaB.org at NGO Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) Forum, New York

for a panel discussion:

SPARKING A GLOBAL MOVEMENT: WOMEN IN TECH SHAPING OUR FUTURE

 

 

 

The panel will focus on the United Nations CSW63 review theme: Women’s empowerment and the link to sustainable development (agreed conclusions of the sixtieth session). With increasing digital economy, girls’ access to education in STEM is a crucial first step in closing the economic gender gap and plays a fundamental part in achieving Sustainable Development Goals. This panel will feature a diverse group of women who work toward the same vision: a future where the people who imagine and build technology mirror the people and societies for which they build it.

 

The AnitaB.org panel is part of the NGO CSW FORUM, which runs parallel to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women from March 11 to March 22, 2019. NGO CSW NY provides civil society with the opportunities to engage at CSW. Over the two weeks of the commission on the status of women, they organize more than 400 events that inform, engage, and most of all inspire grassroots efforts and advocacy needed to empower women and girls.

 

Come support AnitaB.org and join the movement at NGO CSW63.
