Why this is interesting:
Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, the number of women in the Armed Forces of Ukraine has increased by 40%. According to the General Staff, as of March 2024, more than 47,000 women serve in the Armed Forces. Over 4,000 of them are directly on the front lines. According to the State Employment Service, their assistance enabled 240,000 people to find new jobs in 2023, 158,000 (66%) of whom were women.

During the discussion, participants will explore the current pace of the feminization of the labor market and examine its progression across various spheres of the country’s life amidst the war. Additionally, they will analyze existing state policies addressing feminization and propose future strategies to be implemented.
