The Asia Foundation and the U.S. Department of State’s Secretary’s Office of Global Women’s Issues are pleased to announce a virtual reflection session that will provide an overview of a recent regional convening—the Bali Care Economy Dialogue—that took place in November 2022 to leverage global momentum around transforming the care economy while elevating perspectives on care from Asia and the Pacific. Bali Care Dialogue partners included the Center for Global Development, WeProsper Global Coalition, UN Women, Oxfam, IDRC, and the Global Alliance for Care with support from the U.S. Department of State’s Secretary’s Office of Global Women’s Issues.
