The United States Commitment to Women's Empowerment

Know the GAP lecture by Eva Weigold Schultz, Chargé d’Affaires at the Embassy of the United States to Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

Participation is open to the public and free of charge. All participants can enter the Zoom Webinar with this link or with the Webinar ID 937 5074 8913.

In 2019 the WTI Gender Team, led by Prof. Elisa Fornalé, established the WTI Gender Lecture Series. These lectures are conceived as an innovative venue to bring accomplished scholars, leaders of international organizations, government, and the private sector, to the University of Bern. Throughout the year we will share the stories of inspirational women and the results of original research to make a concrete contribution to the progressive achievement of United Nations' Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5 – Gender Equality. Speakers will engage the public on numerous pressing gender issues and topics, including: gender history; gender equality and human rights; politics of gender and race in the Anthropocene; and gender equality and women’s empowerment.

More details about this lecture can be found here.

IMPORTANT: If you want to ask questions during the lecture, please send them to Prof. Fornalé (elisa.fornale@wti.org) in advance (by Monday afternoon).  

*All Know the GAP Gender lectures will be available online as podcasts on our "Equality" page*
