Event: 2020 Commonwealth Women’s Forum in Rwanda

As a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, it is necessary to postpone the 26th Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) scheduled to take place in Kigali, Rwanda on 22 – 27 June 2020.

The 26th CHOGM and associated events will be held in Kigali at a time to be announced in due course.

It will attract 500 participants from governments, civil society, not-for-profits, women’s rights organisations and human rights groups from 53 Commonwealth member countries and the rest of the world.

Participants will share and strategise solutions to address pressing challenges affecting women and girls across the Commonwealth to ensure member countries have robust frameworks and programmes to meet gender equality targets by 2030.

Proposed solutions from the two-day forum will inform Commonwealth leaders’ discussions and decisions on ending gender inequality – involving women at the highest level of policymaking to address challenges directly affecting them.

The theme of the forum is ‘Delivering a Common Future: Transforming for Gender Equality’.

The Commonwealth is hosting the forum in partnership with the government of Rwanda.
