The W20 (engagement group to the G20) proposes policy recommendations to better the lives of women and girls, to the G20.

The Australian Delegation

Its primary objective is to ensure that the gender considerations are mainstreamed into G20 discussions and translate into the G20 Leaders’ Declaration as policies and commitments that foster gender equality and women’s economic empowerment. We collaborate closely with the other delegations of the W20 engagement group, to co-create the annual W20 Communique and Action Plans that are presented to the G20 Leaders, with a view of women and girls' needs being included in the annual G20 Leader's Declaration.
