Women Trailblazers in Finance and Development Economics: A Networking Reception

Thursday, April 11, 2019 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm


Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Former Finance Minister of Nigeria and Distinguished Visiting Fellow, Center for Global Development

Amanda Glassman, Chief Operating Officer and Senior Fellow, Center for Global Development

Join the Center for Global Development for this exciting networking event celebrating women trailblazers in finance and development economics. The conversation will explore the profiled women’s pathways to success and help women leaders make connections in the field. We hope to contribute to the dialogue challenging the scarcity of women’s voices in economics, and the movement to shed light on and transform the systemic barriers that perpetuate this gender disparity. 

CGD’s chief operating officer and senior fellow, Amanda Glassman will host, and we will hear from fellow women trailblazers on how they became who they are, how they navigate their careers, and how they use their positions of power to make an impact. The profiled women will share lessons from their professional journeys and their advice for the next generation of women leaders. 

We hope you’ll join us and be part of this important conversation, meet your peers, and enjoy some drinks and small bites.
