T20 Argentina Associated Event
For the first time since its inception, Think 20 (T20) Argentina, the network of research institutes and think tanks from G20 countries, has a dedicated Task Force to explore issues on women’s economic rights and labour inclusion. The T20 provides research-based policy advice to the G20, facilitates interaction among its members and the policy community, and communicates with the broader public about issues of global importance. In turn, the T20 Gender Economic Equity (GEE) Task Force will contribute knowledge and evidence to multilateral forum discussions on how to foster women’s economic rights.
The GEE Task Force is producing seven Policy Briefs with concrete recommendations to decision makers on topics including women’s financial inclusion, labour inclusion, digital inclusion, the care economy, gender mainstreaming, the future of work and rural women. The diverse Task Force is composed of over 50 experts from 19 countries around the world.
The objective of the Lunchtime Panel Event at the International Association for Feminist Economics’ 27th Annual Conference is to present the GEE Task Force’s key recommendations, as well introducing G20 process and structures to IAFFE participants. The panelists will address the group’s advocacy strategy and share key advocacy opportunities on women’s economic rights within the G20 structures. Furthermore, the panel will seek to inspire feminist economists to engage with the T20 Task Force on Gender Economic Equity to ensure the group’s continuity in the years to come.
