Event: 7th Annual Symposium on the Role of Religion and Faith-Based Organizations in International Affairs
The symposium is organized by faith-based organizations in partnership with the UN Interagency Task Force on Religion and Development. It will take place on January 26, 2021 from 8:00am-12:30pm (EST). The year’s theme is, “2021: A Defining Year for Accelerating Gender Equality, Equity and Justice.”
This symposium will serve as a platform to provide critical analysis and in-depth discussion of key issues that affect faith-based engagement and partnerships with the UN and other stakeholders in working to achieve gender equality. It aims to be a steppingstone to CSW65 and the Generation Equality Forum, as well as to encourage and reinforce longer term faith-based engagement in the Action Coalitions, the ICPD+25 Commitments and other international processes that work for gender justice, including building back better from the COVID-19 pandemic.
