Sonke and MenEngage Africa’s 2nd  session: Addressing shifts in the world of work and care work

This session will bring together speakers addressing the necessary shifts to the world of work in lieu of ILO C190 and the recent recognitions of the role of care work. This session will make a case for the need to examine and come up with holistic solutions that will direct us towards a gender sensitive, inclusive and resilient recovery for our economies within our respective nations. The world should not look the same after this crisis and women should not continue to be marginalised and excluded from key economic sectors and activities.
