On 25 November 2020, the Aga Khan University hosted a webinar to explore these topics, bringing together female leaders who talked about their work, its impact on global health and its relationship to driving gender equity. Today, AKDN is releasing the webinar on its channels to help commemorate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science.
Today is International Day of Women and Girls in Science. In this video, three female science teachers across the Aga Khan Academies in Hyderabad, Mombasa and Dhaka speak about their experiences and share advice with girls who aspire to study science at a higher level.
In September 2020, Vanessa Erogbogbo, Chief of the Sustainable and Inclusive Values Chains section at the International Trade Centre, spoke with Meredith Preston McGhie, Secretary General of the Global Centre for Pluralism about the effects of the pandemic in emerging economies, particularly on micro, small and medium-sized enterprises, which are predominantly run by self-employed women.
Despite the adversities we are facing today, the Aga Khan Academies is committed to its mission and vision in providing exceptional teaching and developing globally-minded students who will contribute positively to their communities and the world. Happy International Day of Education to everyone!
