In accordance with UN General Assembly resolution 73/340, a high-level meeting of the General Assembly will be held in New York later in the year, with the overall theme: “Accelerating the realization of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls”.
As part of the preparations for the high-level meeting, the President of the General Assembly, with the support of the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN-Women), will organize and preside over an interactive multi-stakeholder hearing, to ensure the active participation of multi-stakeholders in the process.
Due to the continued limitations on holding large in-person meetings as a result of the COVID 19 pandemic, the multi-stakeholder hearing will be held on a virtual platform on 21 July 2020 .
The deadline for registration for representatives of ECOSOC accredited organizations was 10 July 2020. Registration has concluded and participants will receive login information for the virtual chat platform in the days prior to the event, by 20 July at the latest.
Alongside the interactive virtual chat platform that required registration, there will be a public webcast to view the proceedings. Viewing of the webcast does not require registration; there is no limit on the number of webcast viewers. The webcast may be viewed here: http://webtv.un.org/ on the day of the meeting.
The United Nations does not charge fees for participation in events.
