This year’s celebration will focus on the efforts of key labour market actors to ensure that equal pay remains central to pandemic responses worldwide and to fully recognize the contributions of women to COVID-19 recovery. The event aims to achieve a reinvigorated commitment to closing the gender pay gap across regions and sectors to build forward better from the COVID-19 pandemic.
