At the 54th Conference of the Status of Women (CSW) held in New York in March 2010 (1 to 10) we felt, heard and understood how the many policies have positively extended. It is now possible to create and develop procedures for the involvement of multiple and differing stakeholders. Beijing keywords Mainstreaming and Empowerment ensure wide participation on different issues and involving the governments of all countries.
Personally I found it exciting to share with delegates and officials the experience of contributing ideas and strategies especially those known as the MDGs (Millennium Development Goals) to be achieved in this century.
We witnessed two important events organized by the International Federations of Business and Professional Women – The Gender Plan of Governments and European Equal Pay project headed by the BPW Germany, that has become an international Campaign with official interest coming from Australia and that it corresponds with ILO regulations.
BPW International President Liz Benham, handled her position with authority and gained the esteem of all present. Her tireless presence in institutional and in-house meetings was commendable.
