Venue: New York, U.S.A, on the Margin of the 62nd Commission on the Status of Women
Date: March 23rd, 2018
The UN-sponsored Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) recognizes gender equality as not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. In the same vein, stakeholders, in the sustainability spectrum have equally maintained that achieving equality in access to education, health care, finance, as well as in leadership representations across all platforms will drive global sustainability.
In recent times, governments, Industry practitioners, global business leaders, academics and research scholars, as well as International Development partners, have drawn up and executed several models and programmes to achieve gender equality and women empowerment. As such, women have thus made advancement and progress in the society, working tirelessly to break new grounds for themselves and making inroads for others in the society. We find women in all kinds of sports, competing in football, baseball, wrestling with male counterparts, and emerging in all high level groups of finance, government and business, even as Presidents, and heads of states.
However, many women around the world have not benefited from the gains and progress made in gender equality. Breakthrough for women in unleashing the benefits of women’s economic empowerment will be hinged on development collaborations and cooperation, and solutions-oriented partnerships involving all actors and stakeholders in the sustainability arena.
Therefore, the Centre for Economic and Leadership Development (CELD) in conjunction with the Amazons Watch Magazine presents The Africa Women Forum (AWF) – New York 2018.
