I am truly excited to be a part of these conversations about some of the biggest social issues we face today, and how they intersect with racism, migration and climate change. I hope you’ll tune in to our live broadcasts over the coming year and contribute your questions, or check out the recorded video or podcast.
Gender equity or the equal access to resources and opportunities regardless of gender is a fundamental human right and essential to achieve full human potential and sustainable societal development. This webinar will discuss how gender equality is interconnected with issues of racism, migration and climate change.
Gender discrimination can be shaped by someone’s race or ethnicity.Racism and gender oppression both use stereotypes to rationalize the subordination and domination of minorities. For migrant women, the discriminatory social institutions they seek to escape, many times social institutions that do not allow women to receive the same level of education as men, may not prepare women for a successful migration.Women are also more likely than men to live in poverty therefore are more dependent for their livelihood on natural resources that are threatened by climate change.
