About the Event
Women represent 50% of the world’s population but own less than 2% of assets and are typically hardest hit by disasters; the UN estimates that 47 million additional women will lapse into extreme poverty due to the pandemic. Join us for an engaging discussion of these issues and solutions developed by leading organizations focused on expanding economic empowerment for low-income women.
