Toward a More Equitable Trade System: Empowering Women
International trade has historically been considered “gender neutral.” Yet, in practice, even seemingly neutral trade policies can discriminate against women. CSIS research has focused on the nexus of gender and trade, and in a new report, the CSIS Scholl Chair in International Business considers what policymakers and negotiators can do to improve women’s global market access. Please join us for a public event featuring Penny Naas, President of International Public Affairs & Sustainability at UPS; Vanessa Erogbogbo, Chief of the Sustainable and Inclusive Value Chains Section and Head of the SheTrades Initiative at the International Trade Centre; and Georgina Wainwright-Kemdirim, Special Advisor for Trade and Gender, Global Affairs Canada. The conversation will be moderated by Bill Reinsch, CSIS Scholl Chair in International Business and Senior Adviser, and Ally Brodsky, Research Assistant with the CSIS Scholl Chair. We look forward to an engaging, informative event.
This event is made possible by support from UPS.
