October Monthly Meeting Recap

By: Alisha Parikh, Intern

Thank you to everyone who attended our October Monthly Meeting both in-person and online! With a focus on the Beijing+25 thematic cluster on “peaceful and inclusive societies” and towards next year’s 20th anniversary of the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, last month’s meeting was focused on that important resolution.

If you were unable to join us, you can watch the Facebook Live video and read the recap of the meeting.

Additionally, you can watch the Zoom recording of the 17 October Beijing Platform for Action Study Group meeting here.
