On Thursday, October 28, GZERO Media and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will look beyond traditional indicators of economic recovery to examine the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on girls and women around the world. From overall health and wellness to representation in the global workforce, women and girls have faced serious setbacks over the past 18+ months. They also hold the key to more robust and inclusive growth in the months and years ahead if policymakers take a gender-intentional approach.
During this townhall, we will examine and discuss the evidence, the opportunities, and the economic arguments that support a truly inclusive recovery.
Join host, Tumelo Mothotoane of eNCA, in a live discussion with:
  • Ian Bremmer, President and Founder, Eurasia Group and GZERO Media
  • Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Former Executive Director, UN Women
  • Minouche Shafik, Director, London School of Economics
  • Mark Suzman, CEO, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
  • Okito Vanessa Wedi, Founder and CEO of Creative Development
