Live Tweet Chat on Women’s Economic Empowerment

May 3, 2017

Today, The Asia Foundation joined eight partner organizations for a day-long tweet chat focusing on different aspects of women’s economic empowerment. The robust discussion was in preparation for the upcoming Women’s Economic Empowerment Global Learning Forum on May 23-25 in Bangkok. The Forum, hosted by The SEEP Network and in collaboration with Forum Partners, will bring together leading stakeholders in the field of women’s economic empowerment to facilitate dialogue, build global learning connections, and promote effective policy and practice to address the needs of vulnerable women around the world. The Asia Foundation will chair a peer-learning panel that will feature staff and partners from China, Malaysia, Colombia, and the U.S. for a session titled “Leveraging Economic Opportunities for Disadvantaged Women Entrepreneurs in Asia and Latin America.”  
 
Here are highlights from the Tweet Chat. Follow #WEEForum2017 for updates on the Forum.
