IIWRMB Delegation Unable to Attend the Meetings of the Commission on the Status of Women Because of Coronavirus

March 3, 2020 During International Women’s Week, there was to be a delegation of 28 members of IIWR-MB in New York, attending meetings of the Commission on the Status of Women, at the United Nations.

And on March 9th, the delegation was to present a Parallel Event, Canada’s Unfinished Business: Tomorrow’s Change Makers – Beijing +25.

We are sorry this did not happen, however there are plans being discussed as to the option to do something here in Winnipeg – when it is safe to do so.

IIWR-MB has ECOSOC status with the United Nations, so we will be one of many voices speaking out about women’s equality in 2020, 25 years after the historic Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action.
