For the 4th session of our Women & ESS seminar cycle, we will discuss the issue of governance in SSE with activists in the field.

We are pleased to invite you to the Women&SSE Webinar#4, on April 10th at 13H UTC / GMT.
Related to this fourth session, about Women & Governance in SSE : This panel of experiences highlights the contribution of women in the governance of the different local, regional, national and international SSE organizations. Discover the reality, the challenges and the importance that women actively participate in the governance. Together, let’s explore what to do to ensure the equal presence and role of women and men.
