Join the UfM International Women’s Day webinar to discuss the importance of bridging the leadership gap and empower women to attain gender equal decision-making. Together, we can achieve this goal!
The event will provide simultaneous interpretation in English, French and Arabic.
This webinar will analyse the challenges that women and girls face to access leadership positions. The discussions will bring together a variety of stakeholders from across sectors, who will analyse the gendered barriers to leadership. Speakers will also share best practices on how to foster women and girls’ leadership across the region.
The event will welcome DG NEAR to present the recently published gender action plan GAP III and share insights on how it will empower women and girls to participate and lead equally in social, economic and political life.
