What are the existing challenges and good practices of creating an equal society?

Only two weeks left until this year’s SITE Development Day – Gender Equality and Economic Development: From Research to Action. There are already more than 100 registered participants for this event, please register as soon as possible if you want to attend.

A society is best developed if both men and women equally contribute to economic and social development, but this can only happen if men and women are given the same freedoms of choice and opportunities in education, labor markets, and in access to capital and finance – both in a legal sense and regarding social norms and practices. This year’s SITE Development Day will focus on existing constraints and also highlight initiatives trying to improve the situation.

SITE Development Day 2018 will feature a combination of presentations and panel discussions. SITE has the privilege to introduce several distinguished speakers, such as:

  • Carin Jämtin, Director General, Sida
  • Raphael Espinoza, Senior Economist, IMF
  • Maria Håkansson, Managing Director, Swedfund
  • Paola Giuliano, Associate Professor of Economics, UCLA
  • Richard Nordström, General Director, Hand in Hand
  • Anne Larilahti, VP Head of Sustainability Strategy, Telia
  • Michal Myck, Director, Centre for Economic Analysis
  • Anna Westerholm, Sweden’s Ambassador, EU Eastern Partnership
  • Charles Becker, Research Professor of Economics, Duke University 
  • Elsa Håstad, Director at the Department for Europe and Latin America, Sida
