Dear International Gender Champions, colleagues,
The IGC Secretariat and the TASC Platform, in partnership with the United States Mission to international organizations in Geneva and Adecco, cordially invite you to a film screening of the new documentary FAIR PLAY and discussion on gender balance at home and at work taking place on Wednesday 7 December from 16:00 to 18:00. Fair Play is a documentary film by Jennifer Siebel Newsom in partnership with Hello Sunshine which aims to make the invisible care work historically held by women visible. It highlights how unfair dynamics in the home are linked to systemic issues affecting millions of families across the globe.
As many organisations return to ‘business as usual’ after the Covid-19 pandemic, this event aims to ‘press pause’ and reflect on how culture and policy change could support a more gender-balanced future for all.
The event is open to the public, including members of the International Gender Champions network and wider Geneva community.
Kitrhona Cerri, Executive Director, TASC Platform
