Women in Foreign Policy
On 10 March, Canning House presented “Women in Foreign Policy”, where female Latin American Ambassadors in the UK shared their insight into the challenges and opportunities faced by women in global diplomacy and their personal experiences in the field.
The core aims of this event were to increase the visibility of Latin American female leadership, gender equality and women's empowerment in global diplomacy and to help nurture a community that promotes positive gender perspectives, as well as a safe and prosperous environment for women in diplomacy. We also sought to highlight and share information on the contribution of Latin American women to global diplomacy, share best practices and increase the visibility of women ambassadors to inspire the next generation of women diplomats and agents of change.
This event was part of our Sustainable Development series, with a particular focus on Sustainable Development Goal 5: Gender Equality, as we seek to contribute to the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.
