The Good News About Gender Equality
Format: Interactive Panel and Q&A

Reflecting on the benefits of and global progress towards gender equality in societies – at work, home and in public life
Where in society are women not only equal, but leading the way? This session brings together speakers who have been at the vanguard of change in the way women navigate societal systems of work, justice, and healthcare. The Panel will explore examples of what’s worked in different settings and around the world and reflect on the impact that equal and equitable access has on improving society for everyone. Despite the Good News, there’s still so much to do, so the session will also identify opportunities for further improvements and what the next steps need to be to progress towards real equality in work, health, and public life.
