Movements for Change: Pathways to Achieving Gender Equality

Call it a movement, campaign, or simply making change – no matter what you label it, a wide range of tools are used to engage local communities around the world in gender equality work every single day. For CSW65, we discussed best practices and lessons learned from the Canadian movement to bring NGOs, grassroots groups and individuals together to advance gender equality from coast-to-coast-to-coast. Together, we can co-create a more just and equal future for all by exchanging best practices and amplifying each other’s voices.
