On 12th March 2010, UNESCO and the OECD Development Centre are jointly organising an International Workshop on “Gender Equality and Progress in Societies” in Paris, a unique opportunity to consider gender equality from a broader perspective while addressing its inherent socio-cultural-economic implications.

Each day prior to the Conference, Wikigender will be focusing on a different session of the Conference. Today, Tuesday 9th March 2010, the focus is on session 2. This session will make explicit the link between gender equality and the progress of societies overall, focusing on measurements, innovations and effective strategies to ensure national and local ownership. Participants will be split into two parallel working groups.
