Remarks to the International Council on Women's Business Leadership Meeting
Secretary of State
Now, the ultimate goal of the council is to develop a platform for putting forth policy recommendations, programs, and activities that empower women and promote gender equality, from access to markets and capital to capacity building and skills training. We’re looking at leadership and leadership development and working together to make sure that any woman who wishes to do so will have the opportunity to contribute to the economy and society where she lives.
I want to have a chance to hear about your experiences and discuss ways that we can put into action your recommendations. Now, we’ve had excellent leadership from our vice chairs, and I want to turn first to Cherie Blair to provide remarks and then to our other vice chair, Indra Nooyi, who joins us by the miracle of technology to do the same.
