Fostering Systemic Change for Adolescent Girls' Education: A Roundtable with FCDO and USAID
First in a series on gender equality and social inclusion in education
Join FHI 360 on October 6th, 2021, for a roundtable with leaders from the U.S. Agency for International Development and the U.K. Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office. The focus will be on how both agencies, their delivery partners and partner governments are fostering systemic change for gender equality in education, especially for adolescent girls. Participants will look at how sustainable partnerships maximize global efforts to build back better in response to the COVID-19 pandemic; support systemic change so that more girls can stay in school, be safe and learn; and open a deeper dialogue about inclusive education.
This roundtable is the first in a series and will set the scene for future events to advance knowledge, evidence and strategy. The series will take an inclusive view of adolescence as a life stage that is critical for young people’s development and education. It will examine how best to design inclusion strategies for young people who are marginalized for a variety of reasons, including their gender identity and sexual orientation. The series will also cover themes such as the role of comprehensive sex education curricula in supporting gender and sexual minorities and supporting schools and training spaces to be safe places for young people.
