Equimundo at CSW68: Schedule of Events

Accelerating the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls by addressing poverty and strengthening institutions and financing with a gender perspective

Share this

In alignment with the CSW priority theme, ‘Accelerating the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls by addressing poverty and strengthening institutions and financing with a gender perspective,’ Equimundo aims to shed light on diverse perspectives regarding men’s role in mitigating gendered patterns of poverty. This encompasses insights from the latest State of the World’s Fathers research findings on the care economy, the significance of men’s allyship in the workplace, and a range of experiences related to program research and development worldwide. Our focus will be on fostering collaboration with the private sector and garnering support from multilateral private sector agencies for equitable workplaces, and investment in the care economy.
