WIIT Women’s Empowerment Series
This session will explore the recent WTO and World Bank joint report Women and Trade: The Role of Trade in Promoting Gender Equality, particularly the data metrics and opportunities for practical collaboration. In the context of COVID-19, women in business are disproportionately negatively impacted economically, but are also a key resource to enable efficient and accelerated economic recovery. This discussion will cover the overall findings of the WTO/WB report; as well as specific areas where women’s economic empowerment can drive restoration of global trade and our domestic communities. 
Welcome by WIIT President-Elect Emily Beline
