Dear ICW sisters and friends, Happy New Year!
May the New Year be one of good health, joy, and satisfaction for each of you. I am entirely grateful for your continuous support toward the goal of achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment in these difficult times. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the sixty-sixth session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW66) will take place in a hybrid format from 14 to 25 March this year. ICW is now organizing a virtual parallel event on March 17 (8:00 AM EST) with the theme of Economic women’s empowerment in the changing world of work. I hope that many of ICW sisters and friends will be attending our virtual event.
In spite of lots of COVID-19 uncertainties, NCW France and ICW Boards are working diligently to ensure great success for the ICW General Assembly in May, Avignon France. Please come and enjoy the charm of the France and join us with the important work of ICW.
Looking forward to meeting all of you in May in Avignon.
Jungsook Kim (Ed.D), President of ICW
