Description

Join the NGO CSW/NY team to help develop and facilitate a platform for the voices and leadership of feminists and women’s rights organizations globally! Have an essential role in creating branding for and developing the NGO CSW69/Beijing+30 Forum platform, one of the largest civil society gatherings at the United Nations. Interns will also have the opportunity to network and connect with global activists, organizations, and those within the UN system. Come and be a part of this next years’ milestone NGO CSW69 Forum, marking 30 years since the 1995 UN World Conference on Women in Beijing and the Beijing Platform for Action. 


The NGO CSW Forum is organized by and for global civil society, non-governmental organizations, and feminists to connect them with the official United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UN CSW) process. With over 750 events, the NGO CSW Forum informs, engages, and inspires grassroots efforts and gender equality advocacy around the world. While the NGO CSW Forum runs parallel to and complements the UN CSW, it is a separate process with separate organizers.
