In March and June 2021, UN Women is convening the Generation Equality Forum (GEF), co-hosted by the governments of Mexico and France. This landmark Forum brings together global partners, activists and allies to define and commit to concrete actions that will accelerate gender equality.

Focussing on the coalition theme of Economic Justice and Rights, you will hear from representatives from the Mexican and French Governments, sharing their insights from the GEF in Mexico and plans for the forthcoming GEF in Paris. Our panel of experts will highlight what is working, and how we build new economic and social systems that include, and work, for everyone.
