Innovative Workshop on Gender, Globalization, and Leadership Held at IBU

On March the 19th 2024, IBU hosted a groundbreaking workshop on "Gender, Globalization, and Leadership," led by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Selma Delalić, as part of the  UNIGEM project. The event, which took place in a packed conference hall, brought together students from different departments to discuss the intricate ways in which globalization has reshaped society and its impact on gender roles.

The workshop delved into several critical areas, highlighting how globalization is not a mere economic or cultural phenomenon but a transformative force that has redefined societal structures, with significant implications for gender dynamics. One of the focal points was the "Feminization of Poverty," an issue that illustrates how women disproportionately bear the burden of global economic challenges, exacerbated by existing gender inequalities.

Political representation and the implementation of quotas were also discussed as essential tools in bridging the gender gap in politics. These measures are seen as crucial for ensuring women's voices are heard and considered in decision-making processes, thereby enhancing democratic governance and gender equality.

Moreover, the workshop addressed the persistent gender employment gap, emphasizing the need for systemic changes to achieve economic equality. The discussion underscored the importance of creating inclusive workplaces that recognize and value diversity and gender equity as key components of leadership in a globalized world.
