Join our community of more than 45,000 people around the world!

We are a coalition of NGOs, civil society organizations (CSOs), and individuals concerned with global gender equality and the rights and empowerment of women and girls. Through our annual NGO CSW Forum, advocacy with UN Member States, information sharing with our community, and youth engagement, we work to bridge the gap between global civil society, grassroots organizations, and the official UN Commission on the Status of Women process in New York.

Sign up for our mailing list to receive email updates and important information about NGO CSW/NY and the NGO CSW Forum.


Over the two weeks of the UN CSW, NGO CSW/NY organizes more than 700 events during the NGO CSW Forum that inform, engage and inspire grassroots efforts and advocacy needed to empower global women and girls.

We're committed to providing our community with advocacy resources, as well as conducting our own advocacy within the UN gender equality space.

Each month, we host a meeting on specific topics related to the CSW priority theme to engage and educate our community. Monthly Meetings are held virtually on Zoom and are open to all.

The Youth Leaders & Young Professionals (YLYPs) are a community of young people and youth advocates who are passionate about global gender equality.
