65th session of the Commission on the Status of Women

NGOs that are accredited to and in good standing with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) may designate representatives to attend the annual sessions of the CSW. GWI members in good standing are invited to register CSW65. Registration is open until 19 February 2021. Online registration via Indico is mandatory. No registrations will be accepted by email.  Please click here to register for CSW65.  Your registration will be reviewed and approved by the GWI Conference Focal Point.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the sixty-fifth session of the Commission on the Status of Women is scheduled to take place virtually/online (including the general discussion, ministerial round tables and interactive events), with the exception of two in-person meetings (opening and closing) that will take place with the participation of New York-based delegates. Negotiations of Agreed Conclusions would likewise take place virtually. This format takes into account the constraints and opportunities as they might present themselves in the changing and evolving environment of the COVID-19 pandemic and the related safety and health guidelines implemented at the United Nations Headquarters. There is no expectation of travel to UNHQ in New York. All side events and parallel events will take place fully virtually.

GWI registrants for the UN Women CSW65 as well as the NGO CSW NY Forum are kindly asked to adhere to the following guidelines:  Any initiative taken by a GWI CSW Representative must be in the name of GWI and must further the mission of GWI,  not personal interests or agendas; preparation materials for CSW will be provided by GWI prior to attendance to CSW which will also be accompanied by an advocacy strategy for the time period;  it is expected that officially registered GWI representatives will submit a report on sessions attended and attend scheduled GWI briefings.
