BPW was very active throughout 68th Session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women in March in New York.

BPWI delivered 12 Parallel Sessions and members presented in many more non-BPW parallel sessions and side events.   At least 4 BPW members served with their government delegations as an integral part of the negotiations and discussions during the Commission on the Status of Women meetings. 

CSW sets a priority theme each year, and reviews progress on the theme from a previous year.  The Agreed Conclusions are drafted after much discussion and debate, and published online..

  • 2024 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
  • Review theme: Social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure for gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.

During CSW, BPW International holds a Leaders’ Summit for BPW members who travel to New York from all around the world. BPW Leaders' Summits are held in New York, every year during the weekend before the CSW and also at the beginning of every Regional Conference. This year it was a packed program with a strong representation from all BPW International Regions.
