Taking place on the margins of virtual MC2020, this session, jointly sponsored by the Organization of Women in International Trade (OWIT); the International Trade Center (ITC) and Women in International Trade (WIIT DC) is an action-focused discussion on how trade policy can foster economic empowerment of women.

This discussion will focus on the launch of ITC’s ground-breaking report on Mainstreaming Gender in Trade Agreements report.
