International Women’s Day: Let us empower and celebrate the wins!
On this International Women's Day, tune in for an exclusive interview with Yolirruth Nuñez, Senior Social Performance and Capacity Building Officer at Oikocredit Peru.
This International Women’s Day, let us not only celebrate the big wins for women in leadership such as Kamala Harris, VP, USA, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, DG, World Trade Organization, Kaja Kallas, PM, Estonia to name few, but also all the other wins for women across the globe from health care workers, caregivers and innovators to farmers, community organizers and others.
Despite this progress, gender equality is yet to be achieved. Across the world, women continue to face the challenge of limited say in decision making, no property rights and excessive domestic responsibilities thus reducing their ability to earn income. To make matters worse, the pandemic is widening the gender gap, leaving women to choose between work and child care.
Oikocredit Canada, in collaboration with Oikocredit US, is celebrating the wins for women from grassroots to policy corridors. On this International Women’s Day, we are pleased to present an exclusive interview with Yolirruth Nuñez, Senior Social Performance and Capacity Building Officer at Oikocredit Peru.
Join us in celebrating the achievements of strong women across the world.
The interview premiers on March 8th at 10am PT / 1pm ET.
