Following the recent launch of the Women’s Policy Group COVID-19 Feminist Recovery Plan, we are pleased to announce that we will be running a webinar series looking at the pillars of the plan in more details. Each month, we will be posting a schedule of webinar events that we will be hosting, alongside themes for discussion and speakers.

First up in the FRP Webinar Series we are specifically looking at COVID-19 Recovery through analysing Poverty, Austerity, Debt, Universal Credit and the impact on women in Northern Ireland. This will be virtually hosted on Thursday 8th October from 10am-11am. Register here: https://bit.ly/36tWYy7
