DASICON is an international conference fully organised by current students of the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna. Addressed to the general public, it provides a space for international experts, interested students, and relevant stakeholders to explore, analyse, and interact.
The 2021 edition with the title “EQUALITY IN PROGESS: Empowering Women – Much Discussed, Least Conceptualized”, which will be held fully online on Friday, February 26th, will focus on the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goal 5: Gender Equality. Therefore, our panels throughout the day from 09:00 to 17:00 will shed light on the development and implementation of gender equality throughout different sectors: technology, medicine, business, economy, society, and politics. The aim of the conference is to invite speakers from diverse backgrounds, engage in critical discussions, and urge participants to consider gender equality in their daily lives by implementing set strategies to achieve SDG 5 by 2030.
Among our speakers are distinguished experts, politicians and diplomats, such as Former Austrian President Heinz Fischer, Federal Minister for Women Susanne Raab, Ambassador Brigitta Blaha, Ambassador Emil Brix and Ambassador Désirée Schweitzer, just to name a few. You will find a full list of speakers and sessions on our website.
