Next Wednesday, March 8, International Women’s Day is commemorated. In this context, the OLACEFS Working Group on Gender Equality and Non-Discrimination (GTG) has organized a discussion entitled “8M: How to achieve equality when there is corruption?”, where the relationship between gender and corruption will be discussed, delving into the differentiated impact on women and other vulnerable groups.
This meeting will have the participation of a panel which consists of Mr. Jorge Bermúdez Soto, Comptroller General of the Republic of Chile and President of the GTG, who will be the moderator of the conversation; Ms. Gabriela Rosero Moncayo, Head of the UN Women office in Chile and Ms. Alicia Bárcena Ibarra, Ambassador of Mexico in Chile as experts of the day.
We know that corruption affects everyone and can be perceived from two perspectives and have a differentiated impact. From the relationship with corrupt practices that involve large amounts of money as exchange currency and the relations between the state apparatus and the citizenry where the exchange currency is not limited to money, but also to sexual favors.
Therefore, this body aims to raise awareness of the need to address the gender-corruption relationship, as well as reveal the commitment of SAIs to mainstream the gender perspective in the fight against corruption.
We invite you to join the event on Wednesday, March 8 at 11:30 a.m., Santiago de Chile time (UTC -4), through the Teams live events platform.
