Network Gender@International Bonn
On the eve of international women’s day 2015, key players in Bonn launched the Gender@International Bonn network. The network promotes gender equality as a goal in its own right and as an enabler of sustainable development. It aims at mutual exchange and cooperation in the field of gender equality, in particular by offering a platform for internationally active stakeholders in Bonn. Hence, members of the network are organizations with an international profile and commitment to the international venue of Bonn.
In its first year of activity, the network has already hosted successful panels and workshops during several international conferences as well events involving Bonn-based women’s organizations. A number of events is scheduled for 2016, among them Deutsche Welle’s Global Media Forum in June.
Current network members are:
- United Nations Organizations in Bonn (UN Bonn)
- State of North Rhine Westphalia, Minister for Federal Affairs, Europe and the Media in the Federal State of NRW
- Deutsche Welle
- Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ)
- UN Women National Committee Germany
- City of Bonn
