About the session
Steer was delighted to have hosted a panel of senior leaders who explored the challenges and successes of embedding Equity and Inclusion into decision-making.
Join us as we amplified the conversation towards achieving equity goals, uniting international leaders to share their strategies and knowledge. We discussed decision-making and implementation from different viewpoints: research, projects, cities, and multilateral development.
