Breakout session | Stage 1
Host: Women Political Leaders
The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the importance of evidence based research to deliver on inclusive and sustainable policy solutions. The Reykjavik Index, as well as other data and recent examples of global female leadership throughout the pandemic, clearly show that perceptions play an important role in access to opportunity. By combining cutting-edge research, tangible policy experience and expertise, as well as the global perspectives of the panel, the vision for this session is to contribute to the cultivation of a revolutionary dialogue: to build society back better. Women, and the world, can no longer afford to wait for equality. Now is the time to achieve systemic change and this session will be geared towards mobilising global energy and action to achieve that.
