We invite you to join us for the upcoming workshop, “Putting All our Ideas to Work: Women and Entrepreneurship,” which will take place at the OECD in Paris from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 24.
Organized by the Business and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC) to the OECD, this event will feature innovations in finance, as well as company initiatives to foster women’s entrepreneurship. It will also serve as a forum for best practice and policy frameworks. A detailed agenda will be available shortly.
This workshop marks the second phase of BIAC’s work on women’s economic empowerment. It follows the BIAC/AmCham Report, Putting all our Minds to Work: Harnessing the Gender Dividend, which focused on women in management. In the coming weeks, BIAC intends to release the results of a survey based on the follow-up to that report.
USCIB Senior Counsel Ronnie Goldberg chairs the BIAC Employment, Labor, and Social Affairs (ELSA) Committee, under the auspices of which this work is being undertaken. USCIB is also engaged in ILO activities related to women’s economic empowerment. We invite any members wishing to receive information on or participate in USCIB’s gender work to please notify Rachel Spence at firstname.lastname@example.org.
