Women and Chemicals Session at the Tomorrow without Toxics Conference

Women and Chemicals Session at the Tomorrow without Toxics Conference


HEJSupport is happy to announce our Session on Women and Chemicals, wich is jointly organized with WECF, AWHHE and ToxicsLink.

Gender equality is among key topics of the Sustainable Development Goals and associated targets and has become one of the focus areas within sound management of chemicals and waste. Women and men are exposed and effected by harmful chemicals in a different way due to the biological susceptibility and the role in the society. A gender-differentiated approach is necessary in policy making, research and project design to increase protection against harmful chemicals to both women and men.

The Round Table provides an opportunity to interactively discuss questions related to gender and chemicals with the focus on women. The outcome of the discussion will be reflected in the call to action of the conference. Together we want to identify potential next steps, activities, and solutions for our joint work on the topic.
