WSIS TalkX: International Women’s Day
March 8, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CETFree
This 2022, International Women’s Day is celebrated under the theme of “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”. Women are increasingly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change as they are recognized to constitute the majority of the world’s low-income population and are more dependent on natural resources. Without solving the global climate crisis there is no economic, social, and environmental development, and gender-equal participation in addressing these issues is essential to making progress towards SDGs.
This session will feature an interactive panel of high-level stakeholders to highlight the role of women in ensuring sustainable tomorrow. This session is organized in the framework of WSIS TalkX and is aligned with WSIS Action Lines and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Ms. Valrie Grant, Founding Member – Committee on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), WGIC will be talking at this event.
