Democracy that Delivers for Women, June 20-21

In honor of the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day, the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) is hosting an important conference to celebrate the achievements of women all over the world. Please save the date and join us in our countdown to this major International Women's Conference. As a board member of CIPE, I am honored to be associated with this timely event where successful approaches to political, economic, and civic empowerment will be shared and discussed.

The Keynote Speaker for the conference is U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Women's Issues, Melanne Verveer.

In this two-day conference, participants will discuss:

Connections between economic, political, and civic empowerment for women

The importance of women's leadership and participation in policymaking
