    Walk Talk Listen live at CSW68 with Zanele (episode 16)

    Walk Talk Listen live at CSW68 with Zanele (episode 16)

    Welcome to a special (semi-) live edition of the Walk Talk Listen podcast! In this 16th and last episode of our special series during CSW68, we're joined by Zanele and she works ACT Ubumbano. As with most of our guests during this year's Commission on the Status of Women (CSW 68), she shares insights mostly based on her personal views.
     
    This time, we're broadcasting directly from the heart of an impactful global event - The 68th annual Commission on the Status of Women (CSW68).

This year, the gathering revolves around a critical theme: "Accelerating the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls by addressing poverty and strengthening institutions and financing with a gender perspective."
     
    In this unique series, we're tweaking our usual format. Although we'll meet and interact with fascinating guests, we'll focus less on personal narratives and more on the overarching topics and insights related to this year's theme. It's an opportunity for us to dive deep into discussions that matter, highlighting the pivotal moments and conversations from CSW68.
