UN Women Webinar on Implementing the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) in Conflict-Affected States

How can the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) empower women and strengthen companies in conflict-affected environments in the Indian Ocean region?

  • Theme of Event: Women’s Economic Empowerment
  • Venue: Virtual Meeting
  • Date: 09 – 09 Dec 2020

 

Join us in this discussion to hear from UN Women, along with two guest speakers:

  • Sadiyo Said, Founder and Chancellor of Hano Academy in Mogadishu, Somalia and Chair of the Managing Committee of Somali STEM Society;

The speakers will share their experiences on promoting the WEPs and women’s economic empowerment in situations affected by conflict, and the principles and tools they have used to overcome the additional challenges posed by working in high-risk areas.

 

This webinar is part of a series on the Women's Empowerment Principles (WEPs) organized by the UN Women project "Promoting Women's Economic Empowerment in the Indian Ocean Rim".
