In March 2023, four Girl Scouts from eastern Oklahoma will serve as delegates at the United Nations headquarters in New York City during the 67th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women! But they need your help!
About the Commission: Each year, over 5,000 women and girls from around the world gather for this two-week session focused on the worldwide state of gender equality. Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma is one of only 5 Girl Scout councils (out of over 100 councils in the USA) selected to send a delegation for the 2023 session. This is a BIG deal! The 2023 priority theme is “Innovation and technological change, and education in the digital age for achieving gender equality and empowerment of all women and girls.”
During the Commission on the Status of Women, girls will attend sessions, listen to speakers, and advocate for what they believe is important and relevant for girls today. They will engage with non-governmental organizations, UN Agencies, Country Missions, and other youth delegates from around the world. Our delegates will help create the agreed conclusion on the priority theme during the session, which is negotiated by all Member States of the United Nations.
The Need: Girl Scouts of the USA is covering some costs for our attendees, but our Girl Scouts need help with the rest of their expenses for the trip! Will you help our eastern Oklahoma Girl Scouts raise their voices on the global stage?
