In March I attended the CSW in New York. This Year’s the theme “Women’s Economic Empowerment in the changing world of work”. The Commission partners with NGO’s from around the world focusing on the status, rights and empowerment of all women and girls, everywhere. The world of work is changing fast, spurred by innovation, globalization and increasing human mobility. At the same time, it is adversely impacted by climate change, humanitarian crises, rising informality of labour and economic inequality. For sustainable and healthy economies, the world of work must empower women and remove the persisting inequalities that hold women back.
