Online event: Gender Equality, Power and Participation during a Pandemic Crisis

Dynamic measures figures symbolic image


The current coronavirus outbreak risks to have higher economic and social impacts for women by slowing down efforts to address gender inequality across the world. This pandemic experience provides an opportunity to move the debate forward by identifying new opportunities (as gender-neutral distribution of care and work time and to “unstereotype” gender roles) and by addressing the urgent need to ensure equal representation of men and women in decision-making processes.  This webinar aims to share expertise on the gender impacts of the crisis, and to discuss the way forward.
