Marking Women’s Day with ITC videos on women’s empowerment

7 March 2017
ITC News
On 8 March, watch videos spotlighting what women are accomplishing in business, technology, traditional arts and other fields – and learn why it makes economic sense to empower women.

When women succeed, everyone wins.

Women-owned enterprises that export tend to earn more, pay more, employ more people and be more productive than firms that only operate domestically. 

To mark International Women’s Day on 8 March 2017, watch videos that show why economically empowering women makes business sense:

Here are some of the featured videos:

  • Moroccan women earn better livelihoods by producing all-natural cosmetics and artisanal candles: 
  • Watch the French version:
  • Syrian designer and other developing-country entrepreneurs tap online markets through a pop-up store in Geneva: 
  • Women around the world support women’s economic empowerment in their mother tongues: 
The International Trade Centre (ITC) works to economically empower women through the SheTrades initiative, which aims to connect one million women entrepreneurs to global markets by 2020. Find more information on the SheTrades website.
