EDGE x Beyond Parity Seminar Series: The art of practicing gender transformative leadership

In the realm of global health, achieving gender parity signifies a pivotal step toward gender equality, yet it merely scratches the surface of a deeper transformation. While critical, parity alone cannot fully address the complexities of diversity, equity, and inclusion in global health workplaces. To truly advance these ideals, we must move beyond gender parity, comprehending its implications and unraveling its intricacies within the context of global health leadership. This webinar aims to explore the concept of moving beyond parity, exploring its significance, implications, and actionable strategies for achieving gender equality in global health initiatives.

Though gender parity serves as a crucial starting point, it alone is insufficient and may inadvertently perpetuate discriminatory power dynamics. True progress necessitates leadership committed to dismantling hierarchies and challenging oppressive norms ingrained within individuals and organizational cultures. This webinar will discuss how current leadership imbalances affect healthcare systems and services, and shape everyday experiences of healthcare workers and leaders.

This webinar series will feature panel discussions, and interactive Q&A sessions with experts and thought leaders in global health, gender equity, and social justice. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in dialogue, share insights, and exchange best practices for moving beyond parity towards a more equitable and inclusive global health agenda.
