WEBINAR 2: Gender and chemicals in different sectors

Chemicals are omnipresent in daily life. That’s why we can find interconnections of gender and chemicals in numerous sectors. In our second webinar we want to discuss gender roles in the management of chemicals and waste and gender differences of chemical exposure in the labour and health sector.
