MORSE student has been selected to represent United Nations Women UK
Dhruv Kulshreshtha, a first year MORSE student, has been selected to represent UN Women UK as a delegate to the 65th session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, taking place in March 2021. The UNCSW that is typically held in the United Nations Headquarters in New York will be a fully digital conference this year because of the covid-19 pandemic.
Through his participation in the CSW, Dhruv aims to promote the need for more men to actively participate in gender equality movements pertaining to domestic violence, harassment, and discrimination against women. As a member of the #heforshe campaign, he also hopes to learn about, and contribute to, the main theme of CSW21: "Women in Public Life - Equal Participation in Decision Making."
