CSW68 Side Events

The programme of side events and parallel events, or activities organized outside the formal programme of the session of the Commission, provides an excellent opportunity for Member States, UN entities and NGOs to discuss themes of the Commission and other critical gender equality issues.

Side events held on UN premises

Permanent Missions, intergovernmental organizations and United Nations entities hold side events on UN premises during the CSW session. The deadline for CSW68 side event applications was 31 January 2024, and we thank all who applied for hosting a CSW68 side event.

The schedule of CSW68 side events will be published here closer to the session.

The organizations of the United Nations system are committed to enabling events taking place in an inclusive, respectful and safe environment. All participants of the CSW, in-person and online, and any contributions they make, must comply with the United Nations Code of Conduct.  By engaging in CSW you accept and agree to abide by the United Nations Code of Conduct

Parallel events held by Non-governmental Organizations

Parallel events organized by NGOs are coordinated by the NGO Committee on the Status of Women (NGO CSW/NY), which is a group of New York–based women’s NGOs in consultative status with the Economic and Social Council. For more information on the NGO CSW68 Forum and on NGO parallel events, please visit the website of NGO CSW/NY at https://ngocsw.org/ .
