CSW60 Side Event - Sharing the Care: How to recognize, reduce, and redistribute

Date: Monday, March 14
Time: 1:15 pm – 2:30 pm
Location: Conference Room 11, United Nations Headquarters

Recognizing and valuing unpaid care work has been broadly recognized as a strategy to advance gender equality as well as economic development. Although this aim has been outlined in declarations and global goals – solutions have fallen short. Join us for this exciting event, “Sharing the Care” to debate which data, policies, and programs can truly revolutionize and advance the unpaid care agenda. This event will include the launch of a new MenCare parental leave platform.
