We are pleased to invite you to participate in the upcoming “Beijing+25 civil society virtual townhall” to be held on 19 October 2020, 8.30–10am EDT.

The event will be an interactive dialogue between UN Women’s leadership and civil society, and moderated by Ms. Lopa Banerjee, Director of the Civil Society Division and Executive Coordinator of the Generation Equality Forum. Discussions will touch on the ongoing work on Beijing+25 as well as the impact of COVID-19 on the gender equality agenda.

Please find linked the flyer, concept note, and agenda for the event. We are sharing (in the linked documents) a set of guiding questions that we hope will drive the conversation in the townhall, but you are also welcomed to discuss other issues as you see relevant.

The event will include the use of a mentimeter, which allows for heightened audience experience and participation and encourages a more dynamic, exciting, and interactive exchange. A mentimeter will also help to consolidate and capture audience responses to questions posed. Kindly refer below to instructions on how to use the mentimeter during this event.

  1. When prompted, grab your phone, computer, or tablet and go to menti.com.
  2. Type in the code shown on the top of the Zoom presentation.
  3. Give a response and the results will appear live on your screen!

We look forward to seeing you join the discussion.
