A panel of policymakers and development partners discussed ambitious approaches to build back better through women’s entrepreneurship, financial inclusion, and green and decent jobs for women.
COVID-19 wiped away a disproportionately higher share of women’s jobs, widening gender gaps in labor market access and increasing women’s vulnerability to poverty. As Asia and the Pacific economies look to recovery, it will be important to address these inequalities in women’s work to ensure a more inclusive "new normal."
The event was held on the sidelines of the 54th Annual Meeting of the ADB Board of Governors.
