Gender Equality in Decision Making Positions
Gender Equality in Decision Making Positions. Assessing Progress
What is the business case for gender equality in decision-making positions? What risks do women currently face in the labor market and how can policies mitigate them to close the gender gap?
Join us on 9 March 2021, as we launch the AXA Research Lab on Gender and Equality at Bocconi University with a live expert panel discussion on the role of policy intervention in closing the gender gap in decision-making positions.
Gender equality is one of the most important transformations of the last century. Not only an issue of rights, gender equality has positive consequences for economic growth and business. Although academic research on gender-related issues is growing in the field of social science, gender gaps and female under-representation in the job market remain widespread throughout the world. Policy intervention is needed to push for a reduction of the gender divide in business and politics. During the webinar, we will assess progress in reaching gender equality in decision-making positions in both business and government.
