As a global network during the digital age, in order to engage with our large membership GLOW Red is committed to providing high quality webinars for our members, and for those interested in GLOW Red’s work.
During this webinar organized by GLOW Red 8th of March 2022, our invited panelists led a discussion on the global theme for International Women’s Day #BreakThe Bias. This tri-lingual session focused on power, and examples of strong female leaders throughout the RCRC Movement as well as steps taken by National Societies to advance women’s leadership.
International Women’s Day Webinar, March 11th, 2020
The webinar focused on the importance of women’s leadership, which has been brought to light in recent reports (Everyone Counts, Data on Diversity: Humanitarian Research Under the Spotlight and Women in Humanitarian Leadership). Why are women leaders important? Where does the RCRC Movement stand in terms of diversity and women’s leadership? How can we encourage more women, from diverse backgrounds, to take on leadership positions?
We were joined by special guests Pip Henty (Leader, Humanitarian Advisory Group) who spoke to her research Data on Diversity: Humanitarian Research Under the Spotlight and Women in Humanitarian Leadership as well as Mercedes Babé (Chair of the Standing Commission & Former Director of International Relations, Spanish Red Cross) who spoke to her personal leadership journey.
