Panel Discussion Overview

This panel discussion will center on the important role of men in the push for gender equality. It will highlight what Women’s Empowerment is NOT. It is not a threat to the place and respect of our men within our homes and the society; rather it supports the role of men. The panel discussion will highlight the point that an empowered woman needs the support of men as allies, to grow, evolve and manifest her best self, which in turn, benefits families, corporations, businesses and the wider community.
