UN Commission on Status of Women (65) parallel event for Working Women’s Forum – Indian Cooperative Network for Women
The sixty-fifth session of the Commission on the Status of Women takes place from 15th to 26th of March 2021. In light of the evolving COVID-19 situation, the CSW65 is not held in the UN headquarters in New York but organized in a hybrid format with mostly virtual meetings.
The IRU member “Working Women´s Forum” together with “Indian Cooperative Network for Women” was asked to organize a virtual parallel event from Chennai. On 24th of March, for two hours Dr Nandini Azad, president of WWF-ICNW, gave an insight into the impressive work of the WWF-ICNW model and its global impact.
Many participants, among other Andreas Kappes, Secretary General of the IRU, Chitose Arai, JCCU Vice Chairperson of the International Cooperative Alliance and Luisa Volpe, Policy Head of World Farmers Organization, shared their thoughts and wishes with IRU Board Member Dr Nandini Azad.
Even under Corona conditions the event was a complete success.
