I am happy to inform you we are now officially, at long last GWI ! Please see message below, said Amy Paunila, Communications and Advocacy Officer of Graduate Women International: “We are pleased to inform you that the Committee on Non-Governmental Organizations at its 2016 Resumed Session, held from 23 May to 3 June 2016, decided to take note of the change of name of your organization from International Federation of University Women in special consultative status with ECOSOC (1947) to Graduate Women International (GWI). This decision was duly endorsed by the Economic and Social Council at its substantive session on 25 July 2016.
Accordingly, we have updated the name of your organization in our system to reflect this change. Therefore, when you register for any upcoming events or meetings in the United Nations, kindly remember to use the new name under which you are now recognized in our database.
