Commonwealth women to enter the spotlight today

The two-day Commonwealth Women’s Forum (CWF 2022), which is being held in parallel with the biennial Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), will take place in Kigali, Rwanda starting today at the Serena Hotel.

Delegates at CWF 2022 will discuss solutions to pressing challenges affecting women and girls across the Commonwealth and seek to ensure that the 54 member countries have robust policies and programmes to meet gender equality targets by 2030.

Proposed solutions from the forum will inform Commonwealth leaders’ discussions and decisions on ending gender inequality – ultimately involving women at the highest level of policymaking to address challenges directly affecting them.

The forum will officially begin with a plenary reflecting on gender equality. This will be followed by a session dubbed, “Women in Leadership: Beyond Numbers”.
