NEW YORK (WABC) — As we celebrate Women’s History Month, Eyewitness News is highlighting two events seeking to further the discussion on gender equality.

The Global Alliance for Care will hold an event called ‘The Relevance of Care Work for Gender Equality,’ in an effort to shed light on the crucial role care systems play in social, labor, environmental and economic policies.

It will feature a discussion on how Global Alliance for Care can promote care systems to bring about transformative change for gender equality and a sustainable future for everyone.

A number of panelists will illustrate the relevance of sustainable care systems to tackle the issue of climate change and build resilient societies.

Eyewitness News anchor Sade Baderinwa will moderate the event which will take place on Wednesday, March 16 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Later in the afternoon, the organization UN Women, will host the event ‘High Level Multistakeholder Intergenerational Dialogue on Generation Equality,’ from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The aim of the discussion will be to reactivate the Generation Equality’s call for financial, policy and programmatic commitments that will advance gender equality for the next five years.
