To support the UN system in its revitalized approach to the SDGs at their halftime point, underscoring the need for cross-cutting attention to gender equality, UN DESA will host a Global Policy Dialogue to present the information in the "Gender Snapshot" in an interactive format for a wide audience. The event will feature speakers from UN DESA, UN Women, and others. Each discussion will include ways to build and scale partnerships to reach our gender targets.

With this dialogue, UN DESA hopes to enhance the preparedness of Member States and the UN system to respond to multi-dimensional, systemic risks in today's interconnected world. These dialogues are made possible by the UN Peace and Development Trust Fund.
