In support of the global and continental efforts to address the challenges posed by COVID-19, the African Women Leaders Network (AWLN) is convening a Virtual Consultation COVID-19 Response on Thursday 28th May 2020. The consultation will aim to better understand the impact of COVID19 on women in Africa, share their knowledge and undertakings to feed into scenario planning and orient responses at policy and action levels, now and in the recovery period. The meeting will also focus on recording and compiling the best practices and lessons learned on the ground from women at the forefront of the fight against the pandemic across Africa.
The meeting will further seek to feed into the various continental and global platforms and ensure African women’s equal participation in all COVID-19 responses.
The consultation will build on the outcome of the virtual meeting organized with national chapters on 25th March 2020 and further seek to look at how the AWLN platform can enhance undertakings at country level in response to COVID-19; how African women are leading, and how can gender be mainstreamed in all efforts.
The consultation will be hosted on Zoom. You can register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A zoom meeting link will then be sent to you confirming your attendance.
