With these action-webinars, RIPESS is inviting you to participate to a virtual meetings’ cycle (2017/2018), in which we want to leave enough time to listen to experts’ testimonials on different topics of interest identified by our group, and create a real international space for exchanges. Please note that our meetings take place in the three RIPESS’ languages (French, English, Spanish).

For more information about the webinar cycle of the Women&SSE RIPESS group.

Topic of the third session: Gender Perspective and Feminist Economics

We know that many women are wondering about gender equality, and therefore are taking a closer look at feminist economics to confirm whether it is more in line with their aspirations, values and entrepreneurial practices.
With activists and experts in the field, we’ll lift the veil on this current reflection to move forward together.
