Sessions and Workshops

Advancing Gender Equality to Tackle Climate Change

  • Sessions and speakers are subject to change.
  • Sharing is caring
Thursday November 14, 1:30 pm-2:30 pm
Location: Atherton

As the effects of climate change continue to exacerbate poverty, inequality, and other social issues, the solutions we put forth must include social focus—including empowering women to be leaders on climate action. The international community—with the Sustainable Development Goals in 2015 and the UNFCCC Gender Action Plan in 2017—is prioritizing women’s leadership on climate change solutions. Business, too, can act by empowering women leaders to act on climate throughout their value chains. Learn how doing so is a win-win-win for business, women, and society.
