Speaker's Bio

Our Faculty Director, Dr. Hadia Majid was invited to speak at a virtual round table discussion organized by Kashf Foundation, titled: “Impact of COVID 19 and Inflation on Low-Income Households, especially Women". The online event brought together different stakeholders to understand how the economic recession coupled with rising inflation has impacted low income households, especially women. It created an opportunity to brainstorm solutions and strategies that can help them alleviate the effects of food inflation and enable the most vulnerable from slipping further into poverty.

Speaking at the second panel, "The Economic Role of Women in Pakistan: Vulnerabilities and Hurdles”, Dr. Hadia discussed the existing vulnerabilities and hurdles faced by women in their working lives in particular, and how these have been exacerbated by the pandemic.
