Ukrainian Institute London, An expert panel (in Ukrainian): Українські жінки: суспільне та політичне лідерство в контексті війни та відновлення УкраїниСпікерки: Тамара Марценюк, Олеся Хромейчук. Модераторка: Ольга Совенко. Реалії війни у значній мірі вплинули на суспільну, політичну та економічну активність українських жінок, як всередині країни, так і за межами України. Незважаючи на дедалі зростаючу роль жінок в усіх ключових сферах суспільного життя в Україні, питання гендерної рівності та протидії дискримінації за ознакою статі досі є актуальними для українського соціуму. Під час розмови буде розглянуто формування української жіночої агентності. Учасники також поміркують про жінок-лідерок і тріщини в «скляній стелі» економічного та політичного сектору в Україні. Чи відкриває війна нові вікна можливостей для жінок? Яким ми бачимо новий соціальний порядок повоєнної України? Цей захід проходить в рамках серії подій Українського Інституту у Лондоні, націлених на об’єднання української активної спільноти в Британії для допомоги Україні.
