Online Event: ASEAN Regional Forum on Social Protection that Empowers Women

Oxfam has the pleasure of inviting you to the virtual ASEAN Regional Forum on Social Protection that Empowers Women that will take place 29 June – 30 June 2021. During two days, women’s organizations, social protection experts, national and international organizations, civil society, UN agencies and governmental representatives will discuss why and how to make social protection more gender transformative.

Social protection is one of the most powerful tools for governments to reduce inequality, vulnerability and poverty. The Covid-19 pandemic has revealed and increased the vulnerabilities faced by women and has underlined the need for meaningful and lasting solutions. An ASEAN collective response to Covid-19 is needed to reflect more inclusive gender transformative policies, where women and girls are included in the conversations to empower them to reap full rights and benefits in the workplace and beyond.
