The Commonwealth Foundation facilitated a meeting of civil society organisations working on gender in February, 2013.

This took place ahead of the annual meeting of the Commonwealth Gender Plan of Action Monitoring Group (CGPMG), held in the wings of the UN’s 57th session on the Commission on the Status of Women, in March, 2013.

The meeting reviewed the experience of the four civil society representatives on the CGPMG, the 10th Women’s Affairs Ministerial Meeting Partners’ Forum, held in Dhaka, Bangladesh in June 2103 and looked at how civil society could contribute to the Commonwealth Secretariat’s Gender Plan of Action End Term Review.

The meeting was held in New York City on 28 February, 2013 and was open to civil society to attend.
