The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has become increasingly involved in assessing the impact of gender inequality on macroeconomic outcomes, including inclusive growth and development. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated such inequality. This presentation will discuss how the IMF supports its members and the international community's commitment to achieve gender equality within the confines of its mandate. It will highlight the work that the IMF is already doing in this area; discuss fiscal reforms that have been made in response to the COVID-19 crisis to improve gender equality and explore areas where the Fund may further enhance its contribution in the future. This session includes brief presentations by each of the speakers and a short panel discussion among the presenters about the IMF’s work in this area.
