Embedding equity into decision-making
Monday 4 December
About the session
Steer was delighted to have hosted a panel of senior leaders who explored the challenges and successes of embedding Equity and Inclusion into decision-making.
Join us as we amplified the conversation towards achieving equity goals, uniting international leaders to share their strategies and knowledge. We discussed decision-making and implementation from different viewpoints: research, projects, cities, and multilateral development.
Attendees gained insights into recent implementations, practices, challenges, and lessons learned from our panelists. If you missed the live event, you can catch up and watch the recording.
