International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

policy changes

connecting women to a global network to increase women self-confidence
The following are the topics of the workshop
1.      Better the Balance, Better the World 
2.      Policies – Changes Required to Advance Gender Equality in CUs 
3.      Enterprise Development – Skills needed by Women
4.      Connecting Women Programs to the Global Women’s Leadership Network
