Increased gender equality is one of the 17 global goals in the UN Agenda 2030. What does this really mean and why is it important? What does an equal world look like and how can we get there? How is gender equality work affected in times where a global pandemic dominates? How can we go from theory to practice?
FUF invites you to online conversations to analyze these issues, discuss the global development work with two knowledgeable people in the field: Sida's alumni Nora Ullman and Åsa Thomasson from CONCORD. The conversation will discuss the issues through Nora and Åsa's experiences of how global development assistance work can be strengthened through global gender equality work.
Nora Ullman is an expert on them Global goals for sustainable development, and has delved specifically into Objective 5 - Gender Equality. With training in development issues, Nora has also carried out fieldwork in Nepal with a focus on women's autonomy. With her practical experience and academic background, Nora has both knowledge of what gender equality work can look like at the grassroots level and an understanding of the role of gender equality in global development as a whole.

CONCORD is a platform that brings together Sweden's organizations that, through international collaborations, examine sustainability and development aid policy in Sweden, Europe and the rest of the world. CONCORD Sweden is part of CONCORD Europe, which works together to influence the EU and its aid work. With Åsa's good insight and knowledge in development aid work, she will present how the work is carried out and how countries work together to achieve the Global Goals.
