The Equality Commission is holding an event to discuss the priority equality issues affecting women in Northern Ireland that need addressed by Government. The particular context for the event is the examination in February 2019 by the UN Committee on the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) of the UK Government’s progress in advancing women’s equality, including in Northern Ireland.
Date: Tuesday 22 January 2019; 9:30am-1:30pm
Venue: Malone House, Belfast
This is a free event that is open to all and will be of particular interest to representatives from the women’s sector, community and voluntary sector groups, trade unions, equality policy leads across the public and private sector, and political representatives.
Registration opens at 9.30am and the event runs from 10am-1pm followed by a light lunch.
Our third solidarity walk will be shorter than usual, in keeping with the quietness and gentleness of the winter season. We’d like to focus on buiding friendships and thinking of the year ahead. There are a number of developments in International, UK and local politics which effect the issues of migration and borders in NI, please join us to be in company with people who care about these issues.
We will be walking a circular route from Belfast Castle. Please let us know if you’d like a lift to the start!
Here is a link to the walk description.
It is described: ” A challenging route, over unsurfaced paths, past the caves to McArt’s Fort, and crossing moorland, heath and meadows. You will discover much of what the park has to offer from archaeological sites and wildlife to panoramic views.”
If you feel the walk might be beyond you but would like to join in please let us know, we would love you to join us and would like to talk to you about how that can happen.
We care about people being able to access our events, so if you have any finacnial barrier to being involved, please contact us as we can offer support getting to the events and with refreshments etc.
We will end with a cosy cup of tea at Belfast Castle.
If you would be able to volunteer for a job, for example helping us promote the walk, taking photographs, printing flyers, giving lifts, etc please let us know.
