Event: Thursday, April 20, 2023, Washington, DC
9:00 AM – 10:00 AM
As Asia and the Pacific emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, the combined effects of economic disruption, health consequences, rising incidence of gender-based violence, increased unpaid caregiving responsibilities, and the additional burdens of conflict and climate change continue to fall disproportionately on women, girls, and disadvantaged populations. Senior Director for Women’s Empowerment and Gender Equality Jane Sloane, discusses trends, promising approaches, and imperatives regarding women’s rights, opportunities, and security. She focuses on girls’ and women’s climate leadership, advancing the women, peace, and security agenda, combating trafficking and GBV, strengthening girls’ leadership and educational attainment, fostering women’s labor force participation, and applying a gender equality and social inclusion lens to closing gender gaps, through a focus on the care economy.
