Full Description: Information Session: Gender Equality in Public Administration (GEPA) Working Group Interested in learning more about the Ford Institute GEPA Working Group and how you can get involved? Graduate Students from across campus, including GSPIA, Sociology, Political Science, Economics, and Public Health are invited to an information session on Wednesday, September 14, 2016. The session will be from 1:30pm - 2:30pm in room 3800 Wesley W. Posvar Hall.

In 2013, the UN Development Programme (UNDP) launched Gender Equality in Public Administration (GEPA) – a research and policy development initiative to collect and make available up-to-date information on gender equality in public administration. In September 2015, the Ford Institute launched the GEPA working group to partner with the UNDP on this initiative. Over the past year, students in the working group collected and analyzed raw data on women’s representation in public administration globally. They presented their findings at a meeting at the UN Headquarters in New York, on May 3, 2016. The 2015/2016 group helped draw a comprehensive picture of current reporting on gender equality. The 2016/2017 group will continue in-depth analysis in the next phase of the GEPA work for UNDP. We look forward to seeing you there.
