Women Lead the Way
This week, the global community gathers for the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) – this year with a focus on social protection systems, access to public services, and sustainable infrastructure for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
We know that progress toward all of these issues, and toward achieving the larger sustainable development agenda, requires strengthening women’s political participation, leadership, and decision-making power at all levels. From corporate boardrooms to the highest political offices, when women lead, they power progress benefiting all.
So this month, as Campaign partners promote women’s participation across CSW events and negotiations, we bring you stories and solutions that highlight the power of women’s leadership across sectors and issues – from climate and water to education and politics!
Join the Deliver for Good Campaign and put girls and women at the center of development.
