In celebration of International Women’s Day and alongside the sixty-fifth session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women, the International Centre for Tax and Development (ICTD) is hosting a webinar on women and taxation in Africa.

The event will feature distinguished tax researchers and practitioners who will share insights on issues including the role of women in shaping tax policy and administration at the national and international levels, the tax knowledge and compliance of African businesswomen, the impact of informal taxes on women across the continent.

Join us to hear their perspectives and experiences, and participate in a discussion of how biases against women in tax systems can be rectified, as well as how to facilitate greater women’s representation and participation in tax research, administration, and policy debates.
