Research shows that gender equality and a gender-balanced leadership are associated with better selection of talent, better performance, more economic growth and a more effective political and business agenda - but no country in the world has reached gender equality. The COVID-19 Pandemic has exacerbated pre-existing gender gaps, thus igniting a she-cession.
The event is organized by Bocconi University and AXA in the framework of the AXA Research Lab on Gender equality, led by Professor Paola Profeta and supported by AXA Italia & the AXA Research Fund.
The Lab promotes social science research related to all areas of gender economics, gender policies and gender diversity management.
In the first panel, at 2 pm CET, academic experts showcase their research on the consequences of COVID-19 on gender equality in different EU countries.
In the second panel, at 3 pm CET, business leaders, researchers and policy makers discuss what measures and actions are needed for a she-recovery
