Gender and Power in COVID-19: Snapshots of Leadership from Female Decision-Makers Across the World

October 25, 2020 (All day)


On-Demand Webinar: Speaker Series: Gender and Power in COVID-19: Snapshots of Leadership from Female Decision-Makers Across the World

Internet Enduring Material sponsored by the Stanford University School of Medicine.  Presented by WomenLift Health at Stanford Global Health.

Though women are at the frontlines of the pandemic as health workers and caregivers, few wield the political power necessary to enforce pandemic preparedness policies – less than 10% of countries around the world are led by women. However, the handful of countries with female leaders are disproportionately flattening the curve and saving more lives, pointing to an urgent need to examine how and why these countries are succeeding – and what leadership has to do with it. Hear why we have no time to lose to elevate women’s political leadership to solve this health crisis and prevent the next one.
