NORTHERN IRELAND 2014
‘Women’s Economic Empowerment in Post-Conflict and Ongoing Peacebuilding States’ was the theme of our Belfast Global Ambassadors Program mentoring forum, which drew mentees from Rwanda, Lebanon, Libya, Indonesia, Somalia, Palestine, Northern Ireland and Croatia. Leading businesses and organizations in tourism, healthcare, youth empowerment and the arts, these extraordinary women were paired with eight accomplished executives in banking, retail, international development, peace and reconciliation and the U.S. military. Together, they explored the potential peacebuilding provides for furthering the economic empowerment of women business leaders.
