Universe to Equiverse - Auslandsbüro Japan / Regionalprogramm Soziale Ordnungspolitik in Asien (SOPAS)
The main objective of the conference was to share unique and impactful best practices; and deliberate upon actions that can be taken to create a gender-equal world – an 'Equiverse'. Global leaders and experts discussed how to enable women to reap an equal share in global prosperity without bearing the disproportionate burden of the challenges. This was visualised in the backdrop of huge and persistent gender gaps, which reflect various facets of the inequality faced by women in all walks of life and have been widened by the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic. However, women’s economic inclusion is critical to economic growth and prosperity; and women’s leadership is vital for creating a ripple effect for restoring balance in the world. The Conference provided a platform to share and learn from the journeys and insights of leaders across sectors and regions, who are engaged in empowering and enabling women. The speakers and panellists acknowledged the need to take a multi-dimensional approach to address the gender issue and provided actionable insights that each of the stakeholders in the ecosystem can take towards building an Equiverse.
