On Thursday, 27 May, 2021 from 15:00-16:15 CEST, University College London (UCL) Institute of Education is hosting an online event titled: “The Politics of Measuring Gender Equality in Education: Perspectives for the G7.”
This meeting launches and presents an innovative framework for measuring gender equality in education. The Accountability for Gender Equality in Education (AGEE) framework provides a clear approach for researchers, policy makers and practitioners and includes a new framework of indicators, which also enables us to assess the specific disruptive effects of COVID and climate change on girls’ education and gender equality in education. The event will be an opportunity to share information and responses reflecting on these two processes.
This event takes place in anticipation of the G7 Summit, a series of discussions between world leaders which will be hosted in the UK this year. Girls’ education is named as a key focus area.
This meeting will:
- launch and explain the AGEE website and framework,
- reflect on the application of the AGEE framework for indicators with a community of practice of policy-makers, activists, development agencies, students and academics
- Nicole Bella, Senior Education Specialist, UNESCO
- Elaine Unterhalter, Professor of Education and International Development, IOE
- Yanchun Zhang, Policy Specialist, UNDP
- with more speakers to be announced shortly
