For International Women’s Day, Wednesday, 04 March 2009,  Geneva Women in International Trade is organising a roundtable on “Women Leading Change – Traction for Trade”:

Leveraging the unique concentration of female talent in Geneva – members of this interactive panel will explore how they create impact from the local to global levels, through leading change.  The event aims to draw us together around leadership in achieving women’s economic empowerment through trade.  Opportunities for engagement will be shared during the session with time for follow-up during the cocktail and networking hour.
