VU Academy Project Officer Nevena Spirovska attends the 62nd session of the Commission on the Status of Women in New York City from Monday 12 - Friday 23 March 2018.

VU Academy helps students demonstrate leadership and achieve success, by taking part in positive social and environmental impact programs.

The Commission on the Status of Women is the largest multi-lateral, global policy women's event in the world. The priority theme for 2018 is Challenges and Opportunities in Achieving Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Rural Women and Girls.

Nevena will join representatives of Member States, UN entities and ECOSOC-accredited non-governmental organisations from all regions of the world. As Victoria University's delegate, Nevena's attendance at the event will enable her to gain an understanding about emerging issues affecting gender equality and the empowerment of rural women and girls around the world.
