Deputy Executive Director of the International Trade Centre – Dorothy Tembo
This week on Womanity-Women in Unity, Dr. Amaleya Goneos-Malka talks to the Deputy Executive Director of the International Trade Centre (ITC), which is the joint agency of the World Trade Organization and the United Nations, Ms Dorothy Tembo. She shares pivotal moments in her career and life, that have charted her path from Zambia to Switzerland. We discuss some of the core goals of the ITC, which works towards creating ‘trade impact for good’, and highlight some of the ITC’s initiatives in relation to women in Africa. For example the SheTrades initiative has connected three million women to market, and continues to expand its hubs into different countries. We remark on evolving culture and tradition to progress gender equality and women’s empowerment. Tune in for more.
