During the 2018 Commission on the Status of Women (CSW62), a side event was held to discuss efforts and measures to reach gender parity within the UN System. Questions such as: how can we promote an inclusive and diverse working environment across the UN System and what measures are necessary to reach the commonly agreed goal of 50/50, were asked. As well as: what is the role of Member States and civil society in reaching parity across the board, what kind of support is needed? And, how do we walk the talk together?
