New research and infographic on women's empowerment championed at IORA Working Group

Major new research on women’s economic participation and empowerment in the Indian Ocean region was welcomed at the Fourth Meeting of IORA’s Working Group on Women’s Economic Empowerment (WGWEE) on 22 July 2021.  In particular:

 

 

The WGWEE called on Member States and the Secretariat to disseminate these products and other outcomes of the IORA-UN Women partnership, which are available on the ‘Flagship Projects’ page on the IORA website.

 

The WGWEE also considered evolving work on forthcoming projects to network and provide training to women entrepreneurs in the region, including a virtual symposium to be co-hosted by Australia and the United States of America, and next steps on improving gender balance in IORA. Outcomes of the meeting will be considered by the next meeting of IORA’s Committee of Senior Officials (CSO) to be held in November 2021.

 

The WGWEE was co-chaired by Mauritius and Australia. The meeting was attended by 50 participants from ministries responsible for gender equality from 17 IORA Member States and the USA as a Dialogue Partners, some of whom are pictured above.
