Webinar: presentation of the key findings and recommendations of the SIGI Global Report 2019
What is new? During this webinar, Gaëlle Ferrant from the OECD Development Centre presented the key findings and recommendations of the SIGI 2019 Global Report: transforming challenges into opportunities.
What is SIGI? The OECD Development Centre’s SIGI looks at the gaps that legislation, social norms and practices create between women and men in terms of rights and opportunities. The event higlighted the SIGI 2019 Global report key messages and informed policy debates on social norms and discrimination against women and girls across the globe.
Why now? There has been clear progress when it comes to political commitments to eliminate gender inequality. Similarly, some social norms that are detrimental to equality have become less prominent. However, in many countries, political commitments, legal reforms and gender-sensitive programmes are still not being translated into real changes for gender equality. Going forward, gender-based discrimination remains a lifelong and heterogeneous challenge for women and girls.
When? The webinar took place on Tuesday 14 May at 4pm (Paris time). It run for one hour. Presentations were followed by a questions and answers session
