Join UNESCO, the African Union’s Centre for Girls’ and Women’s Education in Africa (AU/CIEFFA), the Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWE) and the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) in this upcoming webinar:
When schools shut: Gendered impacts of COVID-19 school closures.
During the webinar, we will examine the findings from two UNESCO reports: When schools shut: Gendered impacts of COVID-19 school closures (2021) and Evidence on the gendered impacts of extended school closures: A systematic review (forthcoming) and consider their implications for East and Southern Africa. We will also discuss how to develop gender-transformative education systems that prioritize equity and resilience and address the key bottlenecks and barriers to education.
The webinar, focusing on East and Southern Africa, will take place on Thursday 9 December 2021, 11.30 a.m. to 1 p.m. (EAT) (9.30 a.m. Paris time).
