Making Transportation Services Work for Women

On April 14, 2020, The Asia Foundation hosted the webinar Making Transportation Services Work for Women: Mobility, Safety, Employment, and Leadership, focusing on the growing concerns and issues within and around the transportation sector, including the need to consider the increased mobility challenges and risk of violence against women and girls due to COVID-19 and how we can advance the security, inclusion, and empowerment of women in the transportation sector. The Asia Foundation’s senior program officer for Women’s Empowerment and Gender Equality, Priya Dhanani, moderated the webinar which had more than 65 attendees. Expert panelists Diya Nag, associate director of Programs for The Asia Foundation in India and Karla Dominguez Gonzalez, a Gender and Transport specialist at the World Bank, led a rich discussion regarding growing evidence of the different ways that women and men experience transportation services and the gender and social inclusion issues that have long been overlooked.
