Global-to-Local Fellows Reflections Events

Upon returning from the United Nations’ 59th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), WomenNC’s 2015 Fellows from UNC-CH, Duke, Meredith and NCSU will share their reflections and experiences from CSW and plans moving forward, at several local and regional North Carolina events.

The 59th CSW theme focused on “Implementing the Beijing Platform For Action,” reflecting on the progress made in the past 20 years since the landmark declaration was adopted in 1995.

Please join us at any one or more of these inspiring events listed below (we’ll add events as speaking opportunities arise),
