Gender discussions at the G7 summit

Gender G7

Promoting women's economic empowerment was one of the main goals discussed at the G7. The recommendations from GEAC included boosting women's employability through training and work culture of equality and job diversity. Recognising and reducing unpaid care work can also contribute to women's economic empowerment.

Good examples of legislative measures in gender equality have also been recognised in developed and developing countries. Leaders of the G7 are being called to adopt and implement these frameworks through the Biarritz Partnership.

Dr Miriam Marra discusses the gender conversations at the G7 in Henley Business School's leading insights. Read the full piece here.
