  • UN Women moderated the webinar and guest speakers included:

    • Alice Laugher, CEO of Committed to Good, a company that provides staff, systems and in-country management, enabling rehabilitation, reconstruction and redevelopment in conflict-affected areas.
    • Sadiyo Said, Founder and Chancellor of Hano Academy in Mogadishu, Somalia and Chair of the Managing Committee of Somali STEM Society.
