Opportunities and Gender

  • SCI Belgrave Square, 14/15 Belgrave Square, London

Canning House’s Opportunities Series will examine, through various lenses, the opportunities and obstacles faced by disadvantaged groups in Latin America.

Opportunities and Gender

The first event, Opportunities and Gender, considers the challenges to achieving gender equality.

What opportunities - for economic security, political & social influence, and personal fulfilment – do women have in 21st Century Latin America? 

How much have they progressed since 2000? 

What strategies, policies and regulations are needed to deliver equal opportunities? 

How does the UK compare?

How can we collaborate to help one another?

Canning House presents a panel of speakers to address these questions.
