The high-level week of the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly will feature a meeting of the UNGA Platform of Women Leaders. This year’s theme is “Transformative Solutions by Women Leaders to Today’s Interlinked Challenges”. Women Heads of State and Government will be invited to share experiences executing decisive and inclusive leadership and policies, with recommendations for building solutions to interrelated and complex crises that respond to society’s needs.

As the world faces complex and interlinking challenges, including the Covid-19 pandemic, humanitarian crises of unprecedented nature, a tipping point in climate change, as well as growing concerns about threats to our global economy, it is more crucial than ever to ensure women and men are equally represented in policy and decision-making.
