International Engagement Forum

8 October 2015 – Australian Human Rights Commission

Level 3, 175 Pitt Street, Sydney

10 am to 4 pm

This forum is part of the NWAs’ international engagement project which aims to increase awareness of and promote involvement in the Commission on the Status of Women, human rights treaty processes and the Sustainable Development Goals. The forums bring together women working towards gender equality in Australia with women focussed on gender equality in the development sector and provide an opportunity for the two groups to share information and develop consistent strategies for using those international processes, particularly regarding the SDGs. The forum will be opened by the Hon. Dr Sharman Stone MP and will consist of:


·         A report back from the UN Sustainable Development Summit 25-27 September, including perspectives from the Australian Government and civil society

·         Forward planning for the domestic and international implementation of the SDGs from a civil society perspective

·         A CSW60 update and forward planning for civil society involvement

·         An update on the Universal Periodic Review of Human Rights in Australia
