[ASK-Y] Session 2: Why Are We Not EqualVIEW EVENT DETAILS
The New Disruptors: Gender and Equality
October 25, 2021 — Following our introductory session, "Re-thinking Sustainability and Youth in the COVID Era," Asia Society Korea invites you to the second session of our Asia Society Korea Youth (ASK-Y) program on gender and equality to be held on October 25 at 12:00 PM KST.
The next in line of our biweekly discussions will be titled "Why Are We Not Equal? New Disruptors: Gender and Equality" as we probe the dual challenges of enhancing equality and countering discrimination across the socio-economic and gender domains. The discussion contributes to the public discourse on the inequalities-sustainability nexus by examining the consequences of unrectified disparities and discrimination in our everyday livelihood.
The ASK-Y panel discussion is hosted by Asia Society Korea Executive Director Yvonne Kim, inviting H.E. Maria Theresa B. Dizon-De Vega, Philippine Ambassador to the Republic of Korea, H.E. Eric Teo Boon Hee, Singaporean Ambassador to the Republic of Korea, and Symone Gosby, Coordinator of Generation Equality Engagement at the United Nations Foundation. The guest speakers will be joined by the 10 young ASK-Y cohorts from eight countries around the central theme of sustainability and youth — expected to be the start of a strong tradition of public diplomacy and transnational youth networks (TYNs).
This is a public event and you can join the webinar via Zoom here.
