The Ford Foundation and Global Philanthropy Project invite you to an event co-convened with Countering Backlash at the Institute for Development Studies that will bring together key stakeholders for a timely discussion on countering anti-gender ideology and anti-rights movements in order to realize a more gender-just world. The online and in-person event will take place on March 19 as a parallel event of the 68th session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW).
Through two dynamic panel discussions, speakers will address how gender is being weaponized across contexts as a means to undermine human rights and threaten democracy. The event will explore the current philanthropic response and identify critical strategies – and the resources required – to meet the urgency of the moment and respond at scale to this threat.
