This side event was organised by the OECD Development Centre, in partnership with UN Women and with the support of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development. The panel and Q&A discussion focused on how social media can empower women to take a larger role in decision-making processes within the post-2015 agenda.
The event took place during the 59 session of the Commission on the Status of Women (United Nations Commission on the Status of Women) in NY: 17 March from 10 until 11.15am, at the UN Headquarters Conference Room 11 (GA Building).
