In the weeks ahead we will have plenary sessions on more key issues in our field, cross regional discussions, networking sessions, and sessions led by our members and partners around the world.
Topics coming up include countering patriarchal backlash against gender equality, masculinities and COVID-19, the politics of unpaid care work and young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR).
See below for the program for the next two weeks.
We invite you to join these important discussions, as well as on the symposium app where you can continue to connect and join the conversation. Please keep an eye on the app as the program in the event app is being updated constantly with new sessions.
See you next week!
