    OWIT Lake Geneva is proud to invite you to the WTO Public Form 2019! Please register before SEPTEMBER 16th on the WTO Public Forum.

    Our session will focus on how to harness current trends to achieve greater gender equity in trade and services by bringing together diverse actors at the international level, to exchange ideas and work within local ecosystems to create impact.

    Key questions that will be addressed in the session comprise:

    • How can current trends and change be leveraged to enable women to take advantage of opportunities in international trade and services? 

    • What are the potential challenges to greater inclusiveness in trade and services and how can business communities, support institutions and other ecosystem actors overcome them? 

    • How must the legal and regulatory environment evolve and what policy innovations are needed to ensure that concerns and potential negative consequences are anticipated and dealt with? 

    • How can we establish a baseline and ensure we track impact on the improvement of gender equity in international trade in services?


    These topics will be discussed by our distinguished panelists:

    Ambassador Chad BlackmanBarbados Ambassador to the UN in Geneva will provide insights into how inclusiveness can be built in to the strategy;

    Nino Zambhakidze, Agric-Enterprise, Head of the Georgian Farmers' Association, Georgia and Clinton Foundation Awardee will highlight how technology has added value to the agro-food industry and discuss the extent to which this has impacted women’s participation in the sector;

    Stephen de Boer, Canadian Ambassador & Permanent Representative to the WTO, will outline how Canada has taken a leadership role in pursuing the integration of gender chapters in its free trade agreements to advance women’s economic empowerment;

    Yolanda Gibb, Global Lead, Trade, for Women’s Economic Imperative (WEI) has worked with the International Trade Centre (ITC) and with the EBRD on assessing gender responsive investment climate;

    The discussion will be moderated by OWIT's Mucha Mlingo, President OWIT Nairobi who drives the agenda of OWIT Nairobi to empower women to transform communities through global trade.

    OWIT Lake Geneva and its partner organisation F-information propose a public speaking event in FRENCH facilitated by Mélanie Blanc-Jouveaux and Chokoufeh Samii, career guidance counselors at F-information and balance-portfolio coaches:

    « Faire son bilan de compétences : pour qui, pour quoi ? » 

    Quand ? - Jeudi 7 novembre 2019 à de 18h30 à 21h30

    Où ? - à F-information, 67, rue de la Servette, 1202 Genève, salle Gabriela, 1er étage (code porte 7632) 

    Le bilan de compétences permet de faire le point à un moment donné de sa vie en prenant le temps de revenir sur son parcours et d’explorer différentes expériences. Il permet d’identifier ses ressources et points forts afin de se projeter dans l’avenir et d’élaborer un projet personnel ou professionnel.

    La soirée se déroulera en deux temps :

    1. Présentation de ce qu’est un bilan de compétences et des différentes formes que peut prendre la démarche.

    2. Sensibilisation à la démarche de bilan par une mise en pratique en petits groupes.

    La soirée sera animée par Mélanie Blanc-Jouveaux et Chokoufeh Samii, conseillères en orientation professionnelle à F-information et accompagnatrices en bilan-portfolio de compétences.

    La présentation sera en français avec la possibilité de répondre aux questions en anglais.
