The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and exacerbated existing inequalities within our societies. The need for inclusive and intersectional feminist leadership is more urgent than ever. When quality, safe, gender-responsive and inclusive education is available to all, it has the potential to transform our societies and reverse inequalities.

A joint learning event from the UN Girls’ Education Initiative (UNGEI) and Gender at Work (G@W), this intergenerational panel discussion will offer a space for learning and exchange around implementing feminist practices and principles, lessons learned through feminist leadership in the context of COVID-19, and identifying priority areas and recommendations to steer a course, through feminist leadership, towards gender equality in and through education.

Feminist and education activists representing Transform Education, a young feminist led coalition hosted by UNGEI, Education International, ActionAid, Gender at Work and more will be invited to speak about their experiences of feminist leadership through the COVID-19 pandemic, the opportunities for feminist leadership to catalyse transformative change in this moment, and the implications for education.
