The Organisation of African Trade Union Unity is organising a virtual conference for women and youth commission members dubbed “Covid-19 Challenges in the World of Work: Gender Equality, Youth Concerns and the Way Forward”. The conference which is slated for 8th April 2021, comes as the pandemic continues to expose weaknesses in social and economic structures across Africa and further sharpens already existing gender inequalities, as well as challenges the youth are facing. The conference will engage women and youth leaders of the organisation in a bid to analyze the impact of the Covid-19 crisis on working women and youth in Africa, and discover effective interventions that will diminish its effects so far and promote the interests of these groups. The conference will be participatory and will involve brief presentations from members of OATUU’s Women and Youth Commission.
