How can we support our champions in advocating for strong gender responsive language?  

You are invited to join us to review gender responsive language aimed at promoting equality and women's empowerment in international fora.

This is a particularly timely event given the number of Governing Bodies meetings taking place in May and June. This roundtable is particularly for those whose champions have made commitments that reference the need to strengthen the language they use in resolutions, statements and other negotiated documents.

Through an interactive session, participants will be able to share their experiences either in the form of best practices or challenges to tabling strong gender related language in international negotiations.

Sandwiches will be served at 12:00.
