IFHE warns against feminization of digital divide

The priority theme of the 59 th session of the United Nations Commission of Social Development is

“The role of digital technologies on social development and wellbeing of all”.

IFHE used its consultative status with the UN to submit a written statement and call on member states to focus on participation of women in digitalization.

IFHE World Congress Postponed – 2022

May 29, 2020
Dear IFHE-US members and colleagues,
As the pandemic is challenging our way of life, we are seeing that many conferences are being cancelled. For over 100 years, the IFHE World Congress has been a source of inspiration to home economists around the globe, but we care about your health and want to do our part to keep everyone safe. We have therefore decided to postpone the IFHE World Congress 2020.
Today, we are announcing that the XXIV IFHE World Congress will be held 4-10 September 2022 in Atlanta, Georgia USA at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. We already look forward to welcoming you there!
Postponing the Congress comes with many organizational decisions. Over the next month, plans will be announced regarding accepted abstracts and refund options. These will be posted on the XXIV World Congress website (see link below).
The 2020 Council Meeting will take place online. Most countries have already nominated delegates who will be informed in a separate email.
Please continue to check the World Congress website for any updates.
Thank you for your patience.
