- Guest Speakers -

  • Debbie Sorensen NZRPN MNZIOD - CEO, Pacific Medical Association
  • Gerardine Clifford-Lidstone - Director, Pacific Health, Ministry of Health

  • Tania Mullane - Head of Pacific Nursing, Whitireia

COVID-19 has exacerbated existing gender inequities, with reports of rising violence against women, as well as higher adverse economic impacts caused both by increased unpaid care-giving and the fact that women work in more insecure, low-paid and informal jobs. Women of colour, indigenous women and youth face compounded risks and barriers.

We are living through a gender equality crisis, and the Generation Equality Forum offers a critical opportunity to confront it.
