Background

 

Organised jointly by UNESCO and the OECD Development Centre, this International Workshop on “Gender Equality and Progress in Societies” is an opportunity to consider gender equality from a broader perspective while addressing its inherent socio-cultural-economic implications. The main goal of this International Workshop will be to develop a common understanding of better ways to measure and address remaining gaps in gender equality, seen from a dynamic and participatory angle.
