Investing in Women Advisory on COVID-19News /17 March 2020
In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, we at Investing in Women recognise the challenges our team, partner organisations and communities face.
We also acknowledge this pandemic will have different impacts on women and men and on different parts of our societies and economies. As nations come together to respond to these challenges, it is a time to ensure that gender stereotypes around caring and economic roles don’t hinder our response and ability to recover.
The IW team is working with our partners to enable them to continue to deliver results for women’s economic empowerment during this challenging period. We have put in place operational measures to support telecommuting for our staff, cancelled all travel and postponed face-to-face meetings and gatherings.
Taking inspiration from IWD2020’s #EachforEqual campaign, we believe that each of us can do our part in addressing and overcoming major challenges such as COVID-19. Now is the time to make that happen.
We wish you, your colleagues and families safe and healthy days ahead.
