Following on the Mexico Forum in March 2021, the Paris Generation Equality Forum will be held from 30 June to 2 July.

We are living through a gender equality crisis, and the Generation Equality Forum offers a critical opportunity to confront it.

Gender Equity in Health Seminar

Join us to spark conversations and catalyse collective action on improving gender equity in the health and care workforce.

COVID-19 has exacerbated existing gender inequities, with reports of rising violence against women, as well as higher adverse economic impacts caused both by increased unpaid care-giving and the fact that women work in more insecure, low-paid and informal jobs. Women of colour, indigenous women and youth face compounded risks and barriers.

Hear from our panel of inspiring women leaders in New Zealand and Pacific Health to share combined knowledge and experience.
