The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, and helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 160 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

New Employment Opportunities for Women on the Labour Market
15 October 2021
10:00—11:30
The development of digital technologies across the globe today is helping to greatly increase female participation in the global economy. It is also facilitating growth in areas where women can work and apply their skills and expertise. Alternative employment models that exist beyond production sites or workplaces (such as temporary or permanent remote working) enable women to successfully combine their professional and familial responsibilities.

Educational institutions are offering more and more distance learning programmes. This in turn is increasing access to education — particularly in remote and rural areas — and providing more opportunities for women and girls to develop professional skills and expertise regardless of where they live.

What can be done to minimize the impact of restrictions on employing women in certain industries? How can women with small children be encouraged to return to work? How should social infrastructure and legislation be overhauled to help women with children remain competitive on the labour market? What pathways exist to address inequalities related to unpaid domestic work, which are hindering women’s opportunities in the labour market? What can be done to motivate women to master new professions?
