Welcome to our IIWR Delegate BLOG! This year OUR delegates will be actively participating in an online community that seeks to engage the stories of their experiences in NYC for CSW #63. The sixty-third session of the Commission on the Status of Women will take place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from March 11 to 22, 2019. This blog will be a forum and community for IIWR delegates to share their experiences, their perspectives and will act as a platform to share a report back to the community – Manitoba.

This years’ theme is:

  • Priority theme: Social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls;
  • Review theme: Women’s empowerment and the link to sustainable development (agreed conclusionsof the sixtieth session);

Please stay tuned as delegates share experiences from past CSW’s, the planning that goes into CSW and their thoughts, views and involvement.
