I had the privilege of being a delegate at the 67th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW67) at the United Nations headquarters in New York.

It was an honor connecting with fellow delegates, ambassadors, and distinguished professionals from around the world. All who come from unique cultures, religions and values. Each event at CSW addressed the challenges and opportunities on behalf of their country or organization, and gave room for negotiation and questions during the sessions. While staying focused on the topic themes of innovation, technology and education in the digital age. In order to achieve gender equality and empowerment for women and girls.

Among the sessions attended were moderated by the UAE General Women’s Union, The League of Arab States, UN Women, EU Parliament, Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), UNICEF, USAID, and more.

Attending CSW as an American representative has given me a unique perspective of how far we have come, and how much further we need go in advocating change for gender-inclusive policies and economic advancements. As well as understanding how the financial industry can make its impact, for not only women and girls, but for everyone at large. I think with continued advocacy and technological advancement, we are on the path to progress.

Thank you, United Nations Association of the United States of America for this opportunity.
