At this Special Event we will focus on CEDAW – the UN Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women.
The day will include talks, panels, and workshops on topics related to the relationship between CEDAW and the women’s sector. Topics include:
- BME women
- Women with disabilities
- Violence against women and girls
- Human Rights
Experts in respective fields will discuss whether and how CEDAW is a valuable tool for women’s equality. The day will include interactive sessions where you will have the opportunity to network with peers, build capacity, share information, and find ways of collaborative working hopefully extending well beyond the day!
