Women’s Economic Empowerment Starts at Home:
Achieving Gender Equality by 2030

In the framework of the 64th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women and the 25th revision of the Beijing Platform of Action, on March 19th at 2:30 PM EST / 11:30 AM PST.

Our chapter will be hosting an engaging panel as a live webcast where we aim to highlight the current challenges to achieve full economic empowerment for women, particularly through the synergies of unpaid care and domestic work redistribution, education and skill development to access decent employment at an ever-changing labor market in the age of Artificial Intelligence, as well as the importance of social security networks and economic policy.

March 19 | 2:30 PM (EST)

Under the umbrella of the 25th year revision of Beijing Platform for Action, the main objective of this panel is to host panelists from  private business,  policy makers and civil society to explore advances in women access to equal opportunities since 1995.

Focusing specifically on access to decent employment, the transition to constantly changing labor markets, the importance of  social security networks and time use distribution related to unpaid domestic work, the panelists exchange best practices and outline challenges to seek and inform lasting solutions to be implemented within the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
