Description

Gender equality in employment is a Sustainable Development Goal which is to be achieved in South Asia.
South Asia's average female employment levels are less than 30 percent in 2019. Given these dwindling figures, it becomes pertinent to understand and explore the topic. Hence, a series of webinar is being launched inviting renowned scholars in the field to enlighten us on the area of female employment in South Asia and its various facets. Additionally, it would also build a network of researchers working in this area.
