About Event

Women are contributors to nation building, the economic sector and community life. However, throughout the world women are under-represented in the majority of employment sectors. Most often, women are paid less than men and fewer reach top positions. The gender gap is not only disadvantaging women themselves; it also has an adverse effect on economies, communities and families. Education is one of the most significant factors for enabling the progression and advancement of women. Higher education institutions must increase their efforts in order to enhance further developments.
