Today it is a clear reality that no country will achieve the UN goal of gender equality by 2030. According to the Global Gender Gap Index Report it will take more than 100 years to close the gender gap and more than 200 years to achieve workplace equality.

Kira Appel and Hannah Ziadeh will engage us in an interactive dialog about ups and downs in gender equality in Denmark and internationally and will help us identify what steps Zonta has to take to contribute significantly to achieve gender equality.
