WeProsper side event at Women Deliver

This event explored relationships and work being done by institutions affiliated to WeProsper. KU WEE hub presented the work it is doing at the hub on gender data and this compared well with work done by policy analysis at UCLA. Another session focused on the Care Economy/Unpaid Care, while a third session focused on Gender-Based Violence & Harmful Practices.
The Hub leader also shared a presentation on reflections serving as a Steering Committee Member during the past 18 months. The presentation focused on the responsibilities undertaken as a steering committee member, reflections, and recommendations for the potential candidates for steering committee members. She also led a discussion group on decent work as an outcome for conference messaging. The group agreed that there is need to define decent work, noting that the definition of decent work varies across different sectors.
