CSW66 Side Events

The programme of side events and parallel events, or activities organized outside the formal programme of the session of the Commission, provides an excellent opportunity for Member States, UN entities and NGOs to discuss themes of the Commission and other critical gender equality issues.


Side events held by Permanent Missions, Intergovernmental Organizations and UN entities

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CSW66 side events took place virtually. Each side event organizer is responsible for hosting and choosing their virtual event platform. Permanent Missions, intergovernmental organizations and United Nations system entities planning to organize CSW66 side events are encouraged to send information about their intended side events to UN-Women by 1 February 2022. 

The organizations of the United Nations system are committed to enabling events at which everyone can participate in an inclusive, respectful and safe environment.
