Join us for a discussion with Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, Former Secretary of State and Arsht-Rock Global Ambassador for Heat, Health and Gender, Reema Nanavaty, Director of the Self-Employed Women’s Association (SEWA), and Eleni Myrivili, Global Chief Heat Officer, for a timely discussion on the solutions that empower women, advance gender equity, and strengthen community resilience.
Our speakers will share the policies and interventions that can address systemic gender inequalities while protecting women from the impacts of climate change—whether in one of the many UN-HABITAT cities or in India’s 2.5-million-member strong trade union.
Secretary Clinton, Reema Nanavaty, and Eleni Myrivili will discuss the urgent need for gender-responsive climate policies, the critical role of women’s leadership in climate adaptation, the importance of scaling up local and grassroots initiatives, and the critical need for collaboration and partnerships to tackle compounding climate challenges. Whether at the local, regional, or national level, there are countless solutions advancing gender equality and climate resilience in communities around the world.
Register to learn about the opportunities policymakers and organizations have to develop gender-responsive programming for a cooler, more resilient future.
