Congratulations to Carol Hanlon, our BPW Belmont member, who has been nominated as a BPW International Delegate at this year's Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) at the United Nations (UN) in New York. For two weeks each March, the CSW turns the focus of the UN towards women and gender related issues worldwide. It is the 60th anniversary of CSW and so this will be a particularly exciting meeting of many delegates from around the world, with the theme "Women's Empowerment and its Link to Sustainable Development".
While the CSW is in progress there will also be a range of parallel events, including seminars and workshops, held in the vicinity of the UN Headquarters. Carol has been selected from hundreds of applicants to facilitate one of the parallel forums "Empowering Women in Small Business", which is a specialty of her business initiative, Belmont BEC Inc, Carol has worked with many women across Australia and internationally for more than 20 years, delivering empowering skills training such as the CSW forum, and for this has been inducted into the West Australian Women's Hall of Fame for her passion and commitment to micro and small business, and supporting business owners to achieve their dreams.
