Greetings to Soroptimists around the world,
I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank those who have spent so many hours preparing for CSW64. SI was better prepared than ever before with side events, parallel events, opportunities for meetings, advocacy training, the SI reception and of course social events galore with sisters from around the world. We have continued to increase our global advocacy voice over the years and are so disappointed we could not execute our plans in New York during these weeks of CSW64.
In addition to New York, meetings have been cancelled or postponed in Bangkok, Geneva, Rome, and Vienna. We will continue to monitor the situation and collaborate with other like-minded NGOs to ensure that Civil Society is included and our voice is heard.
Many Soroptimist events worldwide are under review and many are turning to virtual events to accommodate the desire to continue our work. Soroptimist International is also working to increase the delivery of information virtually.
These are unprecedented times and I hope that all of you and your loved ones remain in good health as COVID-19 moves through all corners of our world.
