Every three years, Commonwealth Ministers responsible for women’s affairs meet to discuss progress and challenges relating to gender equality in the Commonwealth. Civil society play an important role in monitoring and assessing governments' progress to achieve gender equality.
How are we helping
The Foundation convenes a delegation of civil society to participate in discussions. This platform is an opportunity for civil society to meet, share and discuss critical issues and barriers to delivering gender equality and engage with Ministers and Senior officials.
