CSW 63: Women’s leadership in the national agendas of the Americas and Caribbean

Wednesday, March 13, 2019 - 13:00 to 15:00

United Nations headquarters Conference building, 405 E 42nd St, New York, NY 10017, in the Delegates Dining Room

“Women’s Leadership in the National Agendas of the Americas and Caribbean” is a side-event which is being hosted by the Government of Canada, in partnership with the Inter-American Commission of Women of the Organization of American States (CIM) and the Inter-American Task Force on Women’s Leadership, and will bring together Ministerial representatives from OAS Member States and senior officials and experts from key Inter-American institutions. It will take place on the margins of the sixtythird session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). The side-event will be divided into two distinct moments: a Ministerial-level meeting to set the tone and gain political support to increase the commitment about women’s leadership, followed by a technical meeting of senior officials and advisors to focus on five broad themes linked to the barriers to women’s empowerment and to challenges and opportunities for coordinated action between Member States and the Task Force. Goals:

  1. Open a political dialogue among Ministers of Women and Senior Authorities on key issues related to women’s leadership.
  2. Reflect on the key barriers to women’s empowerment in the Americas and Caribbean with a view to setting a strategic direction for future collaboration.
