Disasters such as COVID-19 serve to highlight the inequalities that already exist within our society. eS4W and member organisation Women’s Health & Wellbeing Barwon South West (WHWBSW) have partnered to advance a more informed and representative dialogue between women and key decision makers (including government) to bring about change for women’s economic independence and financial security during COVID-19 and beyond.
On Wednesday, 3rd June, WHWBSW and eS4W held a Virtual Roundtable Discussion “Women’s economic security – what has COVID-19 taught us?”,
The discussion was recorded – please view below:
