Women and the Economy Forum (WEF)

Friday 24 September 2021 - Friday 24 September 2021

Women’s employment has been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. At the same time, much of the essential work and domestic and caring responsibilities during the COVID-19 pandemic are being carried out by women.

The Women’s Economy Forum is an opportunity to work together to progress concrete actions to empower women and girls across the APEC region; to drive efforts to put women and girls at the centre of COVID-19 response and recovery efforts; and to ensure collective APEC responses build economic resilience for women and girls.
