Webinar International Women Day 2021organized by Union for the Mediterranean

Union for the Mediterranean has organized last Friday, 5 March 2021, 11:00-13:00 CET the UfM International Women’s Day, webinar where they have been discussed the importance of bridging the leadership gap and empower women to attain gender equal decision-making. Afaemme's President Maria Helena de Felipe, participated in this webinar.
The pandemic has taken a great toll on our society, our lives and economy. Evidence shows that the impacts of crises are never gender neutral, and COVID-19 is no exception.
As entrepreneurs, nurses or health care and agricultural workers, women around the world have worked relentlessly not only to fight COVID-19 but also to shape a more equal and inclusive future. While women have been in the frontline of the fight against the pandemic, their voices remain left out of the decision-making table.
Indications show that when women are represented and engaged in leadership bodies, their outcomes are more likely to be inclusive: deaths of COVID-19 were 6 times lower in countries where female leaders took early action, countries with a greater proportion of women as top decision-makers in legislatures have lower levels of income inequality and when women hold more executive leadership positions, companies are more profitable.
