Female leadership in peacebuilding: What can we learn from women in the field?

8 March, 2021 @ 2:00 pm

Panel Talk (YouTube Livestream) and After Event Networking Session (Zoom)! 

Note: Separate registration.

As part of the celebrations last year (2020) we saw firm commitments from the United Nations Secretary General on the Women, Peace, and Security agenda and a reminder that we run the risk of losing hard-fought gains on gender equality and peace and recovering better from the COVID-19 pandemic. The recent achievements of female leaders during the COVID-19 crisis have underlined the positive contributions and inclusive recovery female leaders can provide.   

In response to two questions the chair asked in 2019 “where are the women after Resolution 1325 and where are the women in global governance?“, we are asking this panel:

  • What can be learnt from the Women who have excelled in the peace and security environment and what can we learn from their contributions?
  • What have we learned in the last 20 years since the launch of the Women Peace and Security agenda?
  • What lessons can young peace builders learn from women who have worked in the peace and security environment?
