FP Virtual Dialogue: The Role of Female Leadership in Driving Global Recovery and Resilience
July 21, 2020
Tune in for the relaunch of FP's Her Power series amplifying women's voices on the global stage.
As the world begins to reckon with the health, social and economic fallout from the coronavirus, one clear lesson is the need for more inclusive governance: The pandemic has spotlighted women leaders around the world and their ability to effectively manage crises by generating consensus-driven, science-based and decisive action. In politics, business and civil society, we see that gender equality and diversity in decision-making are building momentum for meaningful change. Growing evidence shows that women-led governments correlate with policy priorities that advance equity, social and ecological wellbeing – the kinds of policies that can make our societies and economies more resilient to future shocks.
As the global community is pressed to develop transformative solutions to recover from this crisis and avert future threats, how do we tap into the leadership and change-making potential of women around the world?
Foreign Policy and the Embassy of the State of Qatar in Washington D.C. convened women at the helm of international affairs to explore the role of female leadership in driving global recovery and resilience.
