Forum #2: Impact of Women Leaders on COVID-19 and the Feminist Movement
Women’s leadership has come to the forefront during COVID-19 — from the frontlines in healthcare to the front pages of global news as Public Health Officers and Prime Ministers. Liverpool University studied some 200 countries, 19 of which were led by women, during the first quartile of COVID-19 asking the question: “Leading the Fight Against the Pandemic: Does Gender ‘Really’ Matter?”
Co-author Dr. Supriya Garikipati will open FORUM#2. Fellow panellists will include activists and academics who were at the Beijing 1995 World Women’s Conference, a First Nations Regional Chief, Canada’s first Black woman in the House of Commons, and next generation leaders from Equal Voice and the Prime Minister’s Youth Council.
