More Than 200 People Will Discuss Gender Equality – Join the Conversation!

On Friday, June 1, it’s time for SITE Development Day 2018: Gender Equality and Economic Development – a full day conference with both speakers and participants from business, academia and government!

Development Day 2018 will focus on existing constraints but also highlight initiatives that can help to create an equal society. The conference will feature a combination of presentations and panel discussions, and there will be time for Q&A. Coffee and lunch will be served at the event, so there will also be plenty of time to network – there are already more than 200 people registered from organizations such as Sida, Stockholm University, Nordea and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
