Updates & 2013 UN CSW
December 9, 2012 § Leave a comment
It’s been a while since we posted – a year in fact! We’ve been busy organizing in both the US and abroad. Most recently, we concluded running the Sub-Saharan Africa Women in Public Service Institute led by Decisions in Democracy International (DDI) in NY, MA and NH – right through Hurricane Sandy. The Institute was held at: NYU Stern School of Business, Salvation Army International Social Justice Center, Harvard Kennedy School, Harvard Innovation Lab, Phillips Exeter Academy, and the NH State House to name a few. More updates can be found at the DDI facebook site.
As the year comes to a close, we’d like to share a few updates on the upcoming 2013 UN CSW held at New York City’s UN Headquarters between 4 -15th of March 2013:
- If you’d like to register to run a session at the Parallel Sessions, organized by the NGO CSW Committee, deadline to do so is Monday, 17 DECEMBER 2012.
- Registration for the NGO CSW Forum Consultation Day on 3 March 2013 is not open yet (as of today). Visit the page often to see when they will go up. This event gives participants an overview of the entire 57th UN CSW focus theme. Highly recommended for those attending the UN CSW for the first time, or who can’t attend the rest of the sessions and would like to meet those working in gender equity from around the world.
- Registration to run a “side event” at UN HQ (organized by Permanent Missions and United Nations, which is separate from Parallel Sessions) is open (no deadlines listed, but register EARLY): Side Event portal
- Registration to attend events (official, side events, etc) inside the UN HQ is open. Deadline is 23 January 2013 (register early to avoid confusion and questions which inevitably come up during this process).
