Event description

RSVP ►

2018 was a year of historic gains for women’s representation in UN leadership, with both the Senior Management Group and Resident Coordinators reaching gender parity for the first time. We must continue this momentum if we are to finally fulfil our commitments to reaching gender parity, initially made almost 25 years ago in the Beijing Platform for Action.

How do we make gender parity a reality for all? What role can civil society and Member States play in supporting the United Nations to achieve this long-standing goal? How do we address backlash to parity efforts and engage men in our joint efforts?

This side event will bring together senior UN officials, civil society, and Member States to discuss efforts and measures to reach gender parity within the UN system.

Sponsored by: UN Women Headquarters
