Invitation: Advancing Gender Equality to Realize the Demographic Dividend

Religions for Peace is pleased to invite you to a virtual dialogue on Advancing Gender Equality to Realize the Demographic Dividend that is being organized in collaboration with UNFPA, the German Federal Foreign Office and the Berlin Institute for Population and Development, on Thursday, 7 July 2022 at 2:00pm SAST (GMT +2).

This dialogue brings together representatives of religious organizations, multireligious networks, government, civil society and technical experts, to learn about and discuss the important role of gender equality in attaining the demographic dividend. This is the second event in the African Dialogues on Faith and Demography series. 

This virtual event will explore the necessity of advancing gender equality to achieve the demographic dividend, and the role faith leaders and multireligious actors can play in this effort through the transformation of men’s gender roles; support for women’s leadership and economic empowerment; and the elimination of gender-based violence and harmful practices. Please find the attached concept note and proposed agenda.
