In September 1998, IWDC received Special Consultative Status to the Economic and Social Committees (ECOSOC) of the United Nations. This designation is granted to NGOs that have a special competence in the fields of activity covered by the ECOSOC and allows IWDC to participate in all ECOSOC meetings. IWDC's competence is women's political participation, leadership and advocacy.

Since then, IWDC has facilitated workshops for women leaders from 30 countries around the world focusing on how to advocate for issues and how to manage campaigns. IWDC has also operated programs such as CAMP and UNYDP that have led to the renewal of our Consultative statud for the past 15 years.
