Our President, Leila Springer, has been invited to attend a G20 Business Seminars with African Leaders.
At a recent International Support Links meeting, it was agreed that the WCBCF needs to maintain our commitment to the African continent while looking at including other underdeveloped countries. It was also agreed that we need to find out from the individuals we will be working with what was important to them and what help they needed to provide us with information which would enable us to enhance and plan an appropriate programs.
Attending this G20 meeting provides an opportunity to not only meet with the political leaders, which is important to plant seeds of possible change for the women working in these countries and raising awareness, but also meet some influential people who can be advocates for the women working in the health care system and in the communities back home.
The WCBCF has managed, through work with countries throughout the world, to get a solid sense of what barriers many women face: such as access, resources and cultural. The WCBCF is committed to making the needed connections to remove these barriers and the G20 Business Seminar is a step in the right direction.
