UN ECOSOC Consultative Status
Global G.L.O.W. is honored to have special consultative status by the UN ECOSOC. This achievement enables Global G.L.O.W. to formally consult international policymakers by expanding the organization’s access and influence to international conferences to ensure that girls’ voices are reflected in international policy decisions. Executed by the UN ECOSOC and outlined in Article 71 of the UN Charter, non-governmental organizations holding a consultative role can meaningfully engage in and address UN deliberations.
Global G.L.O.W. will contribute to ECOSOC’s work in advancing the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals focusing on achieving gender equality, promoting girls’ health and wellbeing, reducing inequalities, promoting quality education, and seeking to advance decent future work and economic growth through our unique girl-centered programming. In turn, our programming which supports girls’ socio-emotional development, self-advocacy, health, wellbeing, and future economic opportunities, will contribute to the social and economic development of the communities within which we operate.
