A Conversation on the Successes of the Women's Global Development and Prosperity Initiative (W-GDP)
Launched in February 2019 under the leadership of White House Advisor Ivanka Trump, W-GDP is the first ever whole-of-government approach to global women’s economic empowerment. Join The Heritage Foundation for a discussion with the senior Trump Administration officials leading W-GDP’s implementation as they outline why economically empowered women in the developing world matters for U.S. national security and how W-GDP supports this objective. The panel will also discuss how free market orientated policy reforms in the legal and regulatory space can catalyze women’s lost economic potential.
