The United Nations Association of Australia will host a Consultative Forum in Melbourne, 5-6 September 2016, on the theme: The Economic Empowerment of Women and Girls
This theme aligns with the focus for the 61st Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), to be held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York in March 2017.
This one and a half day forum will include expert keynote speakers, and a range of thematic discussions in which delegates will be encouraged to share their professional and personal insights to workshop a multi-sectoral action plan to advance economic empowerment of women and girls.
There are a few additional speakers, that aren’t yet on here, including Susan Ryan AO, and Karen Volpato, Senior Policy Advisor, Australian Institute of Superannuation Trustees. There are still a few to be announced.
