Please join the Atlantic Council on Monday, March 26 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. for our private member briefing on empowering South Asian women in the workforce. As Women’s History Month draws to a close, it is important that we highlight the many strides and advancements women have made to society, as well as the changes needed to help create gender equity. South Asian women and girls have become more educated than any other period in history, however this increase in education has not translated to greater opportunities for employment in the workforce. This is especially prevalent as many of these employment obstacles against women are deeply engrained into South Asian societies and cultures. This event will examine the future of South Asian women and girls in the workforce and how barriers to entry can be removed to decrease gender disparity.
