Trade unionists from around the world are joining forces to attend the sixty-sixth session of the Commission on the Status of Women and push forward the Global Unions priorities.
Due to the continued implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, CSW66 formal meetings are scheduled to take place in a hybrid format. In-person attendance will be limited and several official meetings such as the interactive dialogues, all side events and parallel events will take place fully virtually. CSW stakeholders, including representatives of organizations in consultative status with ECOSOC, will be able to follow the formal session virtually through a live UN webcast, in the official UN languages EN-FR-ES
In 2022, the UNCSW will consider the priority theme of Achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls in the context of climate change, environmental and disaster risk reduction policies and programmes. The session will also review agreed conclusions of the sixty-first session, Women’s economic empowerment in the changing world of work.
Global Unions have jointly prepared and submitted a Statement to the UNCSW66 calling on UN Member States to act by stepping up their ambitions and prioritising plans for a gender transformative and inclusive Just Transition towards a green and caring economy.

PSI is an accredited organisation for this Commission and will participate virtually with our own delegation that will be composed of up to 50 persons from all regions. To form the delegation, we invite our affiliates to nominate their representatives. We encourage the nomination of women, young and LGBT+ workers from our affiliated unions. We also welcome men to be nominated as members of our delegation, in conformity with our gender mainstreaming policy. We are seeking to ensure representation throughout the entire UNCSW66 event.
