Join Mediators Beyond Borders International New York (MBBI-NY) for an in-person workshop-oriented event focused on human rights violations against women that impede progress globally. Explore opportunities that technology offers to expand and enable participation of women to advance the SDG’s and address human rights violations, as seen through a conflict resolution lens. Dr. Estera Borcsa will share her research project, “Peace Unleashed,” which focuses on the importance of amplifying women’s voices.

The sixty-seventh session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW 67) will assess as its priority theme, “Innovation and technological change, and education in the digital age for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.”  CSW 67 provides a unique opportunity to identify recommendations that will allow for a more inclusive digital evolution to address protection of women and girls who have been historically marginalized. The objective of this session is to provide a platform to share and discuss protection and reporting measures that promote the voices and leadership of women and answer the call for recommendations by the office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). Attendees will have an opportunity to offer their ideas regarding how to advocate for women and girls in the context of United Nations-related initiatives.

Dr. Estera Borcsa is passionate about peace building on a global level, international law, empowering women and breaking generational curses in children impacted by complex trauma. Estera earned her doctoral degree from California Baptist University, where her dissertation focused on global diplomacy, and where she designed “Peace Unleashed,” a diplomacy training program based in neuroscience. She received a master’s degree from the University of Southern California with a concentration in Psychology, Policy and Law. Estera serves as the chair for the SDGs for MBBI’s UN Multilateral Working Group and is on the National Board of Directors for the United Nations Association.
