April 5, 2019, 12.00 – 13.00


On March 8th 2019 the UN CEDAW Committee released their concluding observations following the UK examination in Geneva. The concluding observations include recommendations for the UK and Scottish Governments to take action on a wide range of issues including violence against women, quotas, austerity, data gathering, and of course Brexit.

Our Director Emma Ritch gave evidence to the committee in Geneva in February and will be hosting a webinar where she'll be talking through what happened during the examination, what the recommendations said specifically about women in Scotland, and what happens next.

This webinar is taking place during the day, and we'll also be repeating it in the evening if that is a more convenient time. You can sign up for that here.

Joining the webinar

We'll be using a programme called Zoom to host the webinar, and if you haven't used it before it's really simple.

Click on this link when you are ready to join the webinar. Depending on the computer/phone you are using, you may need to 'download and run zoom' when prompted, but this shouldn't take more than a minute, and is just to allow you to enter the meeting.

You'll need speakers, and ideally a video and microphone function. If you don't have this, that's ok as there is also a chat box which we can use if you aren't able to speak directly to the meeting.

If you have any problems at all, you can call the Engender office on 0131 558 9596 and we can talk you through getting set up.
