Event Details

The pandemic has exasperated pre-existing issues for working womxn. What can we do to fix this? Find out at this event.

The U.N. Perspective Series are free events aiming to build community and convene global and local perspectives on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Presented by the United Nations Association of Greater Boston (UNAGB) and Impact Hub Boston, each U.N. Perspective Series focuses on a specific SDG and opens dialogue between global experts, local leaders, and the Greater Boston community.

In March we will focus on SDG 5: Gender Equality and how the COVID-19 pandemic has further exasperated challenges for working womxn (all those who identify as female). This event will also commemorate the UN’s International Women’s Day on March 8: a day dedicated to the celebration and advancement of females around the world.
