Building a gender-equal recovery

As part of an OECD Forum series, the virtual event Building a gender-equal recovery took place on 28 April 2021.

This event has now ended and registration is closed – but don't worry, you can still watch the replay!

How can we ensure that the COVID-19 crisis provides the wake-up call needed to accelerate and secure lasting gender equality?

Women have been at the forefront of the pandemic, as healthcare workers, teachers, caregivers, working parents juggling new responsibilities. As countries begin to gradually move to a post-pandemic world it is key that plans for the economic and social recovery from COVID-19 include more women both in terms of representation, but also in terms of taking a gender-perspective in all policy measures for the recovery.

Economy Impacts

Started over 1 year ago

1. During the pandemic it is being observed that education is becoming more commercial many universities they are only selling education instead of improving the skills of students. Virtual classes sessions are useful but the gap of face-to-face interaction it always exists which lacks to buildup strong confidence in participants. Virtual sessions are easy way to progress but still such sessions are not able to produce good leaders. Participants or cohorts are not getting the equal value which they have invested on studies. As COVID problem over than how these students will match with those students who have attended live sessions.

2. As Pandemic impacted the business disastrously many small-scale businesses have closed or finished in many regions but definitely some new industries also came in existence to minimize the economy gap., but still the balance looks like unfavorable.

3. Prevention of Gender inequality needs more attention woman still can perform more vital role in business economy and in terms of representations they should be some allocated positions for woman in each department with well-maintained ratio. In developing countries biggest issue for woman growth is not providing them proper infrastructure to grow. Woman must give vital roles for the development of country and establishing their bright future.
