International Women’s Day Celebration

On March 8, the Public Affairs and Political/Economic Sections of the Embassy supported DCM Marianne Scott in hosting an International Woman’s Day event focusing on female entrepreneurs and their use of technology in their businesses.  The event brought together close to 130 women from various sectors to discuss entrepreneurship, challenges they face, successes they have achieved, and best practices they have developed.  The panelists were all Embassy program alumni who actively use technology to promote and grow their businesses.  The panelists shared stories of inspiration and encouragement with the audience and the event proved to be uplifting and motivational for all.
