Virtual Event – Korea-ASEAN Partnership for Sustainable Development in Southeast Asia: Innovation for Gender Equality in Covid-19 Era

Event: Wednesday, December 9, 2020, Seoul, South Korea

December 9, 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM KST 
December 8, 10:00 PM – 1:00 AM PT

The unprecedented onset of the Covid-19 pandemic has put women at a particular position of risk both economically and socially. In a time of crisis, where resources and institutional capacities are constrained, innovative solutions spearheading in both the public and private sector are key in minimizing the disproportionate impact to women and girls and promoting their sustainable recovery and resilience.
The Asia Foundation and ASEAN Centre for Sustainable Development Studies and Dialogue (ACSDSD), with support from KDI School of School of Public Policy and Management, will convene a seminar to exchange knowledge and good practices of innovation for gender equality in ASEAN and Korea and discuss ideas for the way forward. The seminar will feature representatives from ASEAN region and Korea from both governments, private sector, academic, think tank and civil society organizations.
