Grassroots Workshop on Gender Equality in Southern Africa | 26 May 2021
From Data to Policy Action: Tackling Gender-Based Discrimination in Social Institutions in Southern Africa
Virtual Grassroots Workshop
26 May 2021 | 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM (GMT+2)
The OECD Development Centre, in partnership with the African Development Bank Group and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, invites you to a virtual workshop with grassroots organisations working on gender equality and women’s rights in Southern Africa on 26 May 2021 at 10:00 am GMT+2 for an interactive policy discussion.
Building on the OECD Development Centre’s Social Institutions and Gender Index (SIGI) and the African Gender Index (AGI) of the African Development Bank and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, the virtual grassroots workshop aims to track progress and identify key challenges and opportunities for women’s empowerment and greater gender equality in Southern Africa. Participants will include grassroots organisations, civil society and research organisations, think tanks, gender experts and advocates, as well as foundations, who will share their perspectives and expertise on gender equality in Southern Africa.
This workshop is part of a series of virtual policy dialogue events in Africa within the OECD project, “From data to policy action: addressing social institutions governing women’s and men’s behaviour to enhance gender equality in Africa”, supported by the Austrian Development Cooperation; and the regional dissemination of the Africa Gender Index published last year by the African Development Bank Group and UNECA.
