The United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD), in collaboration with the Swiss Confederation, is organizing the 8th Global Forum on Gender Statistics under the Global Gender Statistics Programme and the guidance of the Inter-Agency and Expert Group on Gender Statistics (IAEG-GS).
Aim of the event
This event will further the global dialogue of producers, users and communicators of gender statistics from national and international statistical offices, other government agencies, international organizations, academia, civil society, private sector and the donor community. The Forum will respond to the global COVID-19 pandemic and its long-lasting effects on gender equality and production of gender statistics, discussing ways to build forward better and improve data and evidence for gender policies, including in emerging and untapped areas.
Mark your calendars and stay tuned for more updates.
