Background information:

COVID-19 has exposed the inconvenient truth of the widening inequality within countries and globally. The pandemic is affecting people differently according to their gender, race and class, which deepens the existing socio-economic divides. To recovery from this crisis, transformative leadership must be adopted in the post COVID-19 era.

Since the pandemic outbreak, we have witness several female heads of state and women in the frontline and in our communities lead effective responses in managing this crisis. UN Women stated, “The leadership style of women leaders in the COVID-19 response have been described as more collective than individual, more collaborative than competitive and more coaching than commanding.” Therefore, we demand system change for a more diverse and inclusive decision-making forums to make sure no one will be left behind in the process of recovery and development.

In this webinar, we want to inspire more decision makers to take a transformative approach to lead in post COVID-19 era and build back a better and resilient future for all.
