Women in Law, Business, Politics and Development

29th Feb 2016

Major gender gaps persist around the world, from business and political life, to development opportunities more broadly. These constraints are increasingly well recognized across a range of domains, from sports and entertainment, to access to jobs and violence against women. The importance of law in addressing gender discrimination and gaps has moved to the forefront of the global development agenda.

This Panel discussion, which is a joint initiative of the University of Sydney Business School and University of Sydney Law School, brings together several prominent experts and practitioners to discuss and debate these challenges in the spheres of law, business, politics and development. The Panelists will highlight key obstacles, as well as promising policy and regulatory responses to achieve gender equality.
