ADBI-Yale University Conference on Enabling Gender-Sensitive COVID Recovery in Asia
The COVID-19 pandemic has touched everyone in some way, but many of its impacts, such as job losses and care burdens, have been disproportionately felt by women. Better understanding how women’s economic engagement has changed amid the pandemic and gender sensitive policy responses will be critical to achieving robust and inclusive recovery.
This ADBI-Yale University conference will feature new research on the pandemic and gender equality, focusing on women’s economic activities and policies to promote more gender-equitable recovery in Asia. The conference will also bring together researchers and government officials from the region to discuss policy next steps.
