Press types, you can sign up to attend this event.   I’m looking forward to hearing about Ambassador Verveer’s talk, “Corporate Citizenship: Women–The Optimal Investment”!

“The Department of State will host the Investing in Women To Maximize Returns forum at the Department’s George C. Marshall Center on November 16. Over 100 private sector executives, senior government officials, and nonprofit organization representatives, will meet to discuss strategic investments in women’s economic potential that the private sector is making to drive smart business growth. Participants will share best practices that go beyond corporate social responsibility programs and view investments in women and girls as critical business decisions. The forum will also identify new opportunities for advancing the status of women and girls through innovative public and private sector economic initiatives and programs.”
