07.7 Engagement with non-government organisations and civil society


The Australian Government via the Office for Women, engages with non-government organisations and civil society in the lead up to CSW through a range of mechanisms which may include one or more face to face meetings, requests for written submissions, the commission of reports or requests for input on specific issues.

Information regarding these processes is distributed via the CSW mailing list, the National Women’s Alliance’s networks and other appropriate channels.

The Office for Women also funds the National Women’s Alliances to engage broadly with the sector on key priorities for women in relation to CSW and to provide advice back to government on these issues.
