One of the priorities of Ukraine’s public service is ensuring equal rights and opportunities for women and men. This is a guarantee of institutional stability, professional growth of civil servants, development of the country’s management potential. These issues were discussed at the international seminar “Transformation of Women’s Leadership in Wartime: New Challenges and Perspectives” in the framework of the 15th Richelieu Forum for Public Service.

The participants were authorised persons/coordinators for ensuring equal rights and opportunities for women and men, representatives of units dealing with gender equality, local government officials, educators and experts.
