Side Event organized by the Government of Switzerland in collaboration with the Equal Pay International Coalition (EPIC) at the 65th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW65)
The sixty-fifth session of the Commission on the Status of Women will take place from 15 to 26 March 2021. In light of the evolving COVID-19 situation, and taking into account the latest guidance from the United Nations Secretary-General and the World Health Organization (WHO), CSW65 will take place in a hybrid format with mostly virtual meetings.
Switzerland is organizing an online side event together with the Equal Pay International Coalition. The event will provide an opportunity to amplify interest in innovative and practical solutions and in promising global initiatives to reduce the gender pay gap, also in times of crisis. Special guests will engage in an interactive discussion to advance equal pay for work of equal value globally and take tailored action at country level. Join us and make a difference – women deserve to be paid fairly for their work!
