Celebrating International Women’s Day, together with the Gender and Economic Inclusion (GEI) team, we are pleased to invite you to the first EBRD Green Cities’ webinar of the year: Women Leading on Green, Thursday 11 March 2021, 09.00-10.30 UK-time (GMT).
With women disproportionately vulnerable to climate change, the perspectives that women can bring to Green leadership have never been more important.
Sharing a range of success stories on gender-responsive design and employment opportunities, this webinar asks: how do Green Cities facilitate gender inclusion? how can we work together to support more women taking green leadership roles?
Forming part of the EBRD’s week-long GEI-led #IWD2021 programme, our panel of experts will discuss scaling up on gender inclusive climate action and city planning for both sustainability and crisis recovery and how to effectively ‘lead on green’.
