Women’s Economic Empowerment Series Overcoming the Global Barriers to Achieving Gender Equity
In October 2017, Women for Women International hosted a special series on women’s economic empowerment with global leaders in women’s rights and advocacy. Our CEO, Laurie Adams, led panelists in a thought-provoking and meaningful conversation on the realities of women in post-conflict countries and provided a roadmap for corporations, non-profits, and change makers seeking to offer greater economic opportunities to women survivors of war.
