With progress for gender equality under threat, urgent action is needed to secure rights for women and ensure prosperity for generations to come.

Participants will share insights and explore concrete strategies to foster gender equality in policymaking and invest in women and girls as part of a collective effort to fuel economic growth and ensure a more equitable society for future generations.
