COVID-19 and Beyond: Making Gender Equality a Reality
Tuesday, June 30, 2020
6am (Houston)/ 1pm CET (Berlin) / 6pm ICT (Bangkok) / 7pm CST (Beijing) – 90 Minutes
In the fifth webinar, which is jointly organised by GIZ FABRIC and ILO’s Decent Work in Garment Supply Chains Asia project, we will look at the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on workers in the textile and garment sector in Asia from a gender perspective. Given that women account for roughly 80 per cent of the workforce, they are particularly affected by the predominantly negative effects of COVID-19. These are further exacerbated by underlying practices of discrimination, violence and harassment, lack of women’s representation and leadership, wage gaps, and unpaid care and family obligations. We will hear insights from Bangladesh and Indonesia, and discuss strategies to ensure gender is at the forefront of the COVID-19 recovery. We will also talk about the social and economic benefits of gender inclusive business operations in the textile and garment industry.
