Women's leadership will be critical for rethinking the future in the post-COVID-19 era


The COVID-19 crisis is affecting women and men differently. The twelfth thematic live learning experience from United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) provided an opportunity for local and regional women leaders from across the world to outline their key strategies, concerns, and experiences, recalling their critical role on the frontlines of the crisis.
The session highlighted some key topics identified by women leaders the world over. The increase in gender violence in situations of confinement, the role of women in global leadership, the need for a new governance system that considers women as critical actors in the rebuilding phase, and the state of the world in the COVID-19 aftermath were among the critical issues explored by participants.
