SWBG is running an introductory session on gender budgeting for councillors

About this event

Women and men experience the world differently and face different economic realities and challenges. They use public services differently and therefore decisions made to increase or decrease spending on services will impact women and men differently. Decisions on how best to spend public money and how to raise public funds through tax and charges on services can affect women and men differently. Public spending and revenue raising decisions that do not recognise these different experiences risk entrenching inequality within our communities.

This session will explain how gender budgeting approaches can help local authorities to meet their duties under the Public Sector Equality Duty and how councillors can use gender budgeting to address inequalities.
