Who benefits from a Gender Equal Society?


Zoom  
Tuesday, December 13, 2022 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM   Add to Calendar GMT Standard Time

Gender equity is often interpreted as a zero sum game, men lose so women can gain: gain in position, power, remuneration etc. There has been a lot of dialogue about the contrary being true. The body of evidence is growing to demonstrate who the true winners are. Join a real GEDI (gender, equity and inclusion expert) to discuss the merits of gender equality. The HBA Europe Impact Committee hosts yet another impactful conversion with a high profile thought leader Chidi King, Branch Chief Gender, Diversity and Inclusion at the International Labour Organisation (ILO). They will explore the tensions that lie beneath the premise that gender equity benefits the economy, workplace, home and mental wellbeing of current and future generations.
