Scotland: The Recovery - Creating a Gender Balanced Economy
5 March 2021 | 10:00 - 15:00
COVID-19 has illuminated the harsh gender inequalities that exist in Scotland and impacted the sectors that are traditionally dominated by women and those which provide them with the support needed to work.
Following the kick-off event of Holyrood’s Scotland: The Recovery series, which was a broad - inclusive conversation about what is next for Scotland - subsequent events will be more granular in focus.
In part two of the series, we will be focusing on gender and the importance of creating an economy that, moving forward, works well for all.
The event will consider the actions required to make this happen, including the need for investment in a care economy; gendered-analysis and intersectional gender-sensitive data; and a focus on wellbeing as well as GDP.
It will bring together stakeholders from across the public, private and third sectors as we seek to ensure equality and fairness is embedded in Scotland’s inclusive recovery.
