To celebrate this year’s International Women’s Day, and the 67th Session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), we are offering as a special CSW67 Parallel Event, a multidisciplinary panel addressing issues involving technology and its role in advancing the status of women and girls.

Today, technology is an essential tool in providing women and girls access to health care, justice, education and other opportunities that will result in a better quality of life and the enjoyment of rights in accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Women’s access to technology however, is not guaranteed outright and the barriers to such access which remain must be identified and eliminated.

Some of the topics this panel will present include:

  • multidisciplinary perspectives on the role that technology plays in advancing the status of women and girls;
  • a multi-sectorial analysis of “access to technology gaps”;
  • information pertaining to viable partnerships and collaborations that facilitate women’s access to technology

Please join us for this timely exchange, which will be presented on Zoom, with our special guests: Dr. Catherine Cerulli, a New York-based university professor and Director of the Susan B. Anthony Center, University of Rochester; Allison A. Dunlop, Senior Attorney at Brooklyn Legal Services, Inc.; Dr. Mariam Jashi, Secretary General, Medical Women’s International Association (MWIA) and Former Member of Parliament, Georgia; Dr. Eleanor Ann Nwadinobi, President of the Medical Women’s International Association; and Dr. Murali Shanmugavelan, Postdoctoral Researcher at University of Oxford’s Internet Institute. The panel will be moderated by Fay Yvette Parris, Co-Chair,  Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York, International Women’s Rights Committee.
