The Sustainable Development Goals and the Education 2030 agenda recognise that gender equality is inextricably linked to the right to education for all. Achieving gender equality requires an approach that ensures both girls and boys gain access to and complete education cycles, but are empowered equally in and through education. While great progress has been made in getting girls into school and improving learning outcomes at all levels, persistent gender inequalities continue to limit access and undermine the transformative potential of education.
ODI and UNGEI are co-hosting this event sharing new knowledge on good practice approaches to teaching and learning that enable transformative change and gender equality in education. This event fosters discussion about what works well to achieve targeted changes to girls’ education that contribute to their empowerment and promote change in norms or systems to uncover or address the structural roots of gender inequality in education. On the eve of International Day of the Girl, this critical discussion explores the evidence needed to understand and improve the gendered dynamics of education.
