International seminar: Gender-sensitive labour inclusion in response to Covid-19 in Latin America

This seminar will focus on findings from studies that have analysed the gender-sensitive employment generation social protection policies and strategies implemented by different Latin American countries to address the impact of Covid-19 on the labour market.

The virtual event is part of the closing activities of the  ‘Building back better: Using a disruptive crisis to achieve sustainable and gender inclusive improvements in food security, labour markets and social protection’ project implemented by GRADE. 

Attendees are expected to debate on interventions to promote employment in the economic context affected by the pandemic. They will also discuss policy proposals and recommendations to address this issue from a gender perspective based on the experiences of Argentina, Ecuador, Colombia and Peru.

The seminar will be held in Spanish, at 9 am in Peru, and 11 am in Chile and Uruguay.
