2016 presents an unprecedented opportunity to come together to discuss, debate and then embark on a new path to improve the lives of people everywhere through achieving Gender Equality. The National Council of Women New Zealand is committed to empowering and supporting women in the first instance, but more broadly promoting the idea that everyone gets an equal chance of succeeding in life. While the world has achieved progress towards gender equality and women’s empowerment under the Millennium Development Goals (including equal access to primary education between girls and boys), women and girls continue to suffer discrimination and violence in every part of the world.

Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. Providing women and girls with equal access to education, health care, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes will fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies and humanity at large.

NCWNZ invites you to join leading thinkers from across New Zealand and overseas to explore how we as a nation can do more to ensure women’s full and effective participation, and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision making in their political, economic and public life.
