Description of the Promoting Opportunity for Women's Economic Resilience (POWER) Working Group
Women Thrive Worldwide's February 2012 Gender Roundtable focused on technology and gender, and the disparities between how women and men use, engage with, and find careers in technology throughout the world.
On July 12, 2012, Women Thrive Worldwide hosted a roundtable discussion titled, “What IS the Status of Women and Girls? A Closer Look at the Global Gender Gap.” Our Co-founder and President, Ritu Sharma, moderated the discussion among leading experts in the fields of gender, economics, and nutrition. Panelists discussed the status of women and girls worldwide and proposed solutions to closing the global gender gap.
Despite the best efforts of the Women Thrive community and the GROWTH coalition, the clock ran out on the Global Resources and Opportunities for Women to Thrive Act during the 111th Congress. We remain committed to finding the best strategy to ensure economic opportunities for women around the world and are in talks right now about how best to build on our tremendous strides for 2011.
