Investing in Gender:
Knowledge Sharing between Europe and Asia
The Evaluation office of the European Investment Bank (EIB), in partnership with the Independent Evaluation Department of Asian Development Bank (ADB) have the pleasure to invite you to an important learning event entitled:
“Investing in Gender Equality: Knowledge Sharing between Europe and Asia”
The event will take place at EIB’s headquarters in Luxembourg this upcoming March 6, 2018, in the context of this year’s International Women’s Day celebrations.
Building both on evaluation findings and on more diffuse experience in the two organising institutions and in the community of practice at large, the event will foster an open discussion about the challenges and opportunities associated with promoting and integrating the gender dimension in the operations of international and development financial institutions. The focus will be primarily on mid- and high-income country contexts, where most of EIB’s and an increasing share of ADB’s activities are concentrated.
The event, designed to attract public and private sector professionals, academia, and the civil society, will feature a keynote address by EIB’s Secretary General, Marjut Santoni as well as two panel discussions:
We look forward to welcoming you to this event.
Please register by noon (CET) March 1st, 2018 here.
