Many organizations working on development champion women’s empowerment and equality as a core goal. But behind the scenes, how are these organizations living these values and what can they do better? The Center for Global Development and Devex will host an event highlighting practical ways organizations can live up to their promises for a gender-equal workplace.
Join Alice Evans and other experts to discuss the challenges women still face in the development sector and ways these organizations can “walk the walk.”
