2014 APEC Conference: Utilizing ICTs to Empower Women Entrepreneurs
APEC Women and the Economy 2015 Fora:Overview of the Women and the Economy agenda in APEC
Since the 1996 founding of the Women Leaders’ Network (WLN)—an informal, yet dynamic group that put special emphasis on the participation of women in APEC—women’s economic empowerment has gained greater ground. The APEC Women and the Economy Fora has blossomed into a significant platform for women representatives of 21 economies to assess achievements, identify current barriers, as well as appropriate interventions, and support future aspirations for the continued participation of women in APEC.
