Launched on 4 October 2007, the UNESCO Forum on Gender Equality focuses on various topics pertaining to women’s empowerment and gender equality, with a view to bringing more attention to gender equality issues in relation to UNESCO’s fields of competence, and to raise awareness of the importance of promoting women’s empowerment and achieving gender equality.

In order to relaunch these series of UNESCO Forum, we are pleased to propose a presentation by Ms Caren Grown.

Ms Grown will talk about her vision in her new role as the Senior Director for Gender in her Organization, her vision of Gender Equality in the post-2015 agenda in relation to the UNESCO domains and the possibilities of collaboration between the World Bank and UNESCO.
