FES New York, in conjunction with the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), Education International (EI), and Public Services International (PSI), hosted a seminar on “Trade Union Perspectives on Women’s Economic Empowerment in the Changing World of Work”. The seminar served as a Global Trade Union preparatory meeting for the 2017 United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW61), which has taken up the priority theme, “Women’s Economic Empowerment in the Changing World of Work”.

The participating trade unionists worked to develop a strategy for trade union representation and labour lobbying in the UNCSW61, to ensure high-level participation of trade unions in panels and official side-events, and to develop a strategy for increased labour visibility at UNCSW61.
