Female leaders shaping the world of the future: Building a new normal

What will our future look like? What kind of world are you imagining?  The COVID-19 pandemic offers a unique opportunity.  The opportunity to overhaul the biased structures, legislation, and norms that inform our societies’ perceptions of women and women’s access to equal opportunities.

To seize this opportunity, Women Political Leaders (WPL) is hosting a Global Webinar entitled:  

“Female leaders shaping the world of the future: Building a new normal” 

                              11  June 2020   I   9:30–11:00 CEST   I  ZOOM

This WPL Global Webinar will establish a strong foundation as we work towards equality for women and men in a post-COVID-19 society.  It will provide the opportunity to discuss ways to ensure that women are key actors in the creation and implementation of structural and sustainable change regarding equality.
