IWD dialogue - “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”

Across the globe, women at all levels are championing climate action, and these achievements continue to inspire young minds to break the ceiling and lead the change. As we draw near to celebrate International Women’s Day and in line with the overarching theme, “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”, UNEP MGCY is organizing a dialogue session.

With a blend of experienced career leaders, these insights from the session will help inspire and shape the next generation of women leaders who are trying to navigate through the various adversities and bureaucracies. In addition, we believe the conversation should not end here but continue to ignite more conversations and the fiery passion amongst young female activists, scientists, and changemakers around the world.

The ultimate objective of this virtual dialogue is to foster intergenerational conversations between leading women and youth in the wake of climate change, environmental governance, the global pandemic and now Safe Space for Youth Activists.
