Education and Gender
The Resource Foundation (TRF), a non-profit based in New York that facilitates philanthropic donor activities to Latin America and the Caribbean, together with Fundación Origen of Pirque, conducted the "Gender and Education: Seeds for an Equitable Future" event held on April 14 between 3:00 and 6:00 pm in the Transoceánica Campus of Vitacura.
This interactive meeting brought together NGOs from Latin American countries that participate in the TRF’s Regional Education and Gender Equity Program– that took place during the same week in the premises of Fundación Origen–as well as distinguished panelists and invited representatives of national and international organizations.
“Education and Gender: Seeds for an Equitable Future” began with a presentation that then led to group activities that explored and contemplated on education and gender equality as fundamental pillars for the development of the region. Each of the panelists presented the issue from their perspective and scenario, which created an interesting dialogue that crossed territorial, political and conceptual barriers.
