Comission for Social Development Statement – January 2022

In addition to the Convention to End all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW), SIGBI has access to the Commission for Social Development (CSocD) through Soroptimist International (SI).

SIGBI has co-signed a recent submission to CSocD from the NGO Committee on Social Development, which advocates for a new social contract which values inclusive collaboration and ensures respect and dignity for the most vulnerable people.

This is another example of the value of our ECOSOC  status (Economic and Social Council ) which enables us to raise issues of importance for the work we do at the highest levels. The work clubs do locally and globally adds to these endeavours – thank you.
