Convened to discuss policies and actions to increase the participation of women in trade, the jam-packed day long event featured (amongst others as speakers!) President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia; Deputy President Joseph Ruto of Kenya; Cabinet Secretary Dr. Amina Mohamed of Kenya; Secretary General of UNCTAD; Director General of the UN Office in Nairobi; Deputy Director General of the WTO; Secretary General of the East African Community; Ministers from Barbados, Sweden, Finland, Norway, the UK, Zambia, Lesotho, the Netherlands; the private sector’s Barclays, Google, Coca Cola, Thomson Reuters; bad ass female entrepreneurs from Mongolia, Namibia, South Africa, the US, and Kenya; and media partners CCTV Africa and The Guardian.
