The Australian Delegation gathers at CSW67.
The United Nations (UN) hosts the world’s biggest gathering on women’s rights – The Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) each year.
Global leaders, campaigners, and policy-makers come together for two weeks at the UN Headquarters in New York to discuss the progress that has been made towards achieving gender equality and the work that is still required to do.
Those discussions and negotiations feed the outcome document, which, if adopted by the Commission, will give guidance to United Nations agencies and UN member states on how to push the women’s rights agenda forward.
This year’s priority theme for CSW67 is innovation, technological change, and education in the digital age for women and girls.
The pictured delegation above represents women from all over Australia on the world stage at CSW67.
NCWA proudly attended alongside women from across our cities, regions and the bush, sharing invaluable ideas and insights.

We can only progress in gender equality when we empower and amplify the ideas and experiences of women from all backgrounds and cultures.
With such a strong group of women in attendance and all working toward achieving gender equality, we are thrilled to have connected with many international partners and delegates from across the globe, we look to continue to create long-lasting change for women and girls.
Until gender equality is achieved, NCWA will continue to advocate for the rights of women and girls in all their diversity.
