Invitation: #DigitalDiplomacy – the first public digital meeting between women foreign ministers
On International Women’s Day on 8 March, Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot Wallström will gather women foreign ministers from different parts of the world for a video conference to discuss women, peace and security.
International Women's Day is celebrated on 8 March each year to highlight the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, and to accelerate action towards gender parity. This year's theme is #BeBoldForChange, which is a call to all of us to help forge a more gender-inclusive world. "Through purposeful collaboration, we can help women advance and unleash the limitless potential offered to economies the world over."
The countries taking part in FM Wallström's public digital meeting are Colombia, Panama, Kenya and Liechtenstein. During the meeting, each minister will have the opportunity to share her experiences and priorities, and give her view of peacebuilding and gender equality in a foreign policy context.
The meeting will be broadcast live on the Ministry for Foreign Affairs’ Facebook page and Twitter account, and on YouTube.
Date: 8 March
