Applications are open to all Australian citizens to be part of the Australian Government Delegation to CSW. During the last quarter of the year, the Office for Women invites all individuals interested in being included on the government delegation to submit an application for consideration. Notice of when applications are open will be sent out via the above mentioned email list and advertised on the PM&C website. This is a competitive process and eligible individuals participate in a open selection process.
Successful delegates generally have expertise in the Priority Theme for the year and/or a strong background working in the fields of gender equality and women’s empowerment or international human rights advocacy. They are expected to have links with Australian and international NGOs and the community more broadly. This will allow them to provide expert advice to other delegates, consult with the Australian community prior to CSW and share their experiences upon their return.
