Event description

Description

Ecumenical Women (EW) was established in 2000 after the United Nations' Beijing +5 conference to more effectively advocate, from a Christian perspective, for women's equal participation in society - financially, socially, personally, and politically. Every year since then, it has engaged in ecumenical advocacy, advocacy training and worship at the annual United Nations Commission on the Status of Women held at UN headquarters in New York each February/March. EW also collaborates with UN Women, at other Commissions and at UN-related meetings throughout the year.


At UNCSW 60, Ecumenical Women will offer a full day's orientation and training the Saturday before UNCSW opens, morning ecumenical worship every weekday during UNCSW, daily advocacy opportunities and regular evening debriefs, and two Advocacy Dinners which provide opportunities for fellowship, networking and strategizing for advocacy.


Orientation Day - Saturday, March 12th, 8:30 am - 6:00 pm

Ecumenical worship, networking, orientation and overview of United Nations processes and structures, theological foundations and the how to's of advocacy, discussion of the Bejing +20 theme and EW's joint written statement. Breakfast, lunch, an evening reception and Ecumenical Women's Advocacy Guide (2nd edition) are included in the $40 registration fee.

Vegetarian and Gluten-Free options will be provided. Should you have additional food concerns (i.e. food allergies), please contact your Ecumenical Women representative after you have completed your registration.
