WITA Webinar: Opportunities for Engagement on Trade and Gender

Thursday, March 18, 2021 at 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM (EST)
WITA Webinar WITA Online Event

To move towards more inclusive trade, international institutions and its member countries can be essential drivers of gender equality and women’s empowerment through trade policy and trade agreements. 

Speakers will discuss how governments and international institutions can work together to bring more gender parity in trade, which has traditionally been thought of as a gender neutral policy issue. 

Please join WITA on March 18, as we examine the implications of trade and gender. 

Event to be held virtually on Zoom
