In the first of our SI Voices podcast series for 2024 we review CSW68, the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, or ‘CSW’ event which took place this year in March.  CSW is a key event in Soroptimist International’s calendar as it is a Commission that focuses specifically on promoting gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. This year, a delegation of more than 100 Soroptimists from all continents attended in person, while many more followed events online. In this podcast episode we will hear individual perspectives and reflections from Berthe De Vos, Soroptimist International Main Representative to the United Nations in Geneva and Hana Smith, Soroptimist International Global Policy Advisor, who both attended CSW68 in person this year.
