Free webinar on gender and economic recovery
Following the publication of our 9 principles for an economic recovery that work for women, Close the Gap and Engender are hosting a webinar to discuss how to ensure that Scotland's economic recovery does not leave women behind. The webinar is free and you can register here.
The coronavirus crisis is having a disproportionate economic impact on women, whose work is work is systematically undervalued in the economy, including work that is critical to the Covid-19 response such as health and social care, retail and cleaning. The cumulative impact of the crisis will push many women into further and deeper poverty.
In the webinar our Executive Director, Anna Ritchie Allan, along with Engender's Executive Director, Emma Ritch, will be talking through the principles and there will be space for discussion on how to ensure Scotland's economic recovery is gendered.
The webinar will be held via zoom, and information for joining will be sent on the day of the webinar.
