Breakthrough initiatives for women are being prepared by the third EWF
Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Galina Karelova held a meeting with members of the Council of the Eurasian Women's Forum (EWF). The participants of the event discussed the implementation of international projects and preparations for the third Eurasian Women's Forum, which will be held in September 2021.
The meeting outlined one of the main areas of work of the Federation Council today - the development of international cooperation and the implementation of joint projects at major international platforms.
“In recent years, work has intensified to develop the women's agenda both in Russia and in the world. Cooperation with international organizations and associations UNIDO, APEC, BRICS, "Women's Twenty" is effectively developing”, - said Galina Karelova.
The Vice Speaker recalled that the Council of the Eurasian Women's Forum, together with relevant ministries and women's public organizations, has formed projects aimed at increasing the participation of women in industry, the digital economy, corporate charity, and territorial development.
During the pandemic, activities continued to develop international projects of the EWF Council. Thus, an online session of the third Eurasian Women's Forum, dedicated to the role of women in the development of corporate social responsibility after the coronavirus pandemic, was held. Note that the Governor of Ugra Natalya Komarova took part in this online conference and spoke on the topic of regional social responsibility.
“It is broader than the corporate one, as it includes responsibility both for those who work and for those who, for example, have not found their place in the labor market or do not work for objective reasons. The coronavirus has already affected employment. In our region in April-May, the number of unemployed increased 3.9 times. Stabilization of the labor market is one of the priorities of the recovery period. The regional plan of priority measures to ensure sustainable development of the economy, synchronized with the national action plan, works for this, ” the Governor of Ugra noted during the meeting.
During the meeting on preparation for the EWF, proposals on agenda of the event were discussed, successful international projects and the results of their implementation were considered.“Active work has already begun on preparations for the Forum, which should present not only the achieved results of the implementation of existing projects, but also new, breakthrough, innovative international initiatives in the interests of women,” summed up Galina Karelova.
