Two-part webinar series on inclusive education for girls with disabilities
Building on studies conducted by UNICEF, Humanity & Inclusion and Sightsavers in West and Central Africa, this two-part webinar series will shed light on the importance of intersectionality in education, with a focus on gender and disability. This webinar series is a joint initiative between the UN Girls’ Education Initiative (UNGEI), Humanity & Inclusion (HI), Sightsavers, UNICEF, and IIEP-UNESCO.
In May, a regional webinar will look at the results of the studies in depth and stimulate discussions around the local, national and regional responses that are needed to effectively address barriers and ensure inclusive education for girls with disabilities.
In June, a global webinar will make linkages with girls’ education efforts as part of the global agenda, in the lead up to the G7 and GPE Replenishment Summits. The evidence collected and the lessons learnt from West and Central Africa will inspire advocacy, policy influencing and recommendations for international cooperation to ensure that education is gender and disability inclusive.
