Feminae Carta Research Retreat
An opportunity for our researchers to learn from experts, professors and fellow researchers from universities, institutions, and non-profits globally. All of the individuals also had experience studying at various universities around the world. The focus of this retreat was sparking conversations about the biggest issues that women face, potential solutions, and how research is effectively conducted in an academic and non-profit sector.
To understand the current work that is being done for gender equality by different nonprofits and companies, our researchers had the opportunity to meet with experts and leaders in the field. These closed conversations provided them an opportunity to learn more about the work being done, but also possibilities for the future and potential solutions through collaborations between non-state actors. Below, are the companies/nonprofits whose members we had a chance to consult with:
Gender Inequalities have been prevalent throughout our world for so many years, and this is a fact that is known to women all over the world. We all face gender inequality differently in our lives, due to the intersection of our identities, and there is a lot of work which is yet to be done to ensure that women are given equal treatment, and equal opportunities to pursue the goals of their dreams. Our incredible group of researchers share a common belief: that big, bold ideas and policy shifts for gender equality are possible, and needed. We hope that through this background guide, you are able to learn more about this important cause, and gain insights into how to take action.
