SEEP ConferenceFrom September 28-30, 2015, USAID’s Southern Africa Trade Hub and partner organization Banyan Global participated in the 30th SEEP Network Annual Conference entitled, “Inclusion and Resilience: The Next Challenge” in Arlington, Virginia.

Lis Meyers delivered a presentation on gender integration within the Southern Africa Trade Hub and the Persuasive Communications Training initiative that was recently conducted in Botswana and Zambia.

She also represented the Southern Africa Trade Hub as part of a panel discussion, “Promoting Women’s Participation in Local, Regional and International Trade.”  The session examined successful global interventions to pinpoint the most effective ways to expand women’s roles and participation in trade and thereby promote women’s economic empowerment.
