Bangladesh Youth Leadership Center (BYLC), the country’s first leadership institute, will organize a webinar titled ‘Covid-19 crisis and way out : Story of Women Leadership’, marking the International Women’s Day on Saturday.
The webinar, to be held virtually, is aligned with this year’s UN International Women’s Day theme, Women in leadership: achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world. News agency United News of Bangladesh (UNB) is the media partner of the event.
Since the very beginning of the pandemic, female leaders have stood at the frontlines, as health care workers, caregivers, innovators, community organizers, and as some of the most exemplary and effective national leaders, said a press release.
They have single-handedly proven their potential in contributing to societal welfare amidst the raging COVID-19 crisis. Although there has been significant progress in accepting more women than ever before in cultivating experiences, perspectives, and skills in a professional setting, there are far fewer women as heads of states globally even today.
Furthermore, the pandemic has caused domestic violence to increase in the past few months, leading to women facing abuse, unpaid care duties, and unemployment worldwide.
By bringing over 500 youth to participate in the webinar, BYLC hopes to celebrate the many
ways that female leaders have contributed in ending the pandemic, as well as enforcing
the essence of creating a sustained gender equality bias.
The webinar will be held in zoom
