Since this was the introductory session for those attending UNCSW65 it covered a lot of ground and related to many, many issues that women are dealing with at all levels.
This event was both celebratory and informative. There was a wide range of speakers, all very well prepared and articulate. Music was well chosen and uplifting or inspiring. There was a lot of information conveyed, too much to capture in a brief report.
The session would be impactful to any GWI members in terms of the information it imparted about UNCSW and the related work done by NGOs to both give input to CSW and to support the work that CSW is doing. This can help drive systemic change as well as conditions for women and girls at the local level.
Clearly widespread collaboration is already happening and is key. The whole conference is ideal for fostering further collaboration.
