Happy International Women's Day!
To commemorate this day and the rest of Women's History Month, at the Forefront calls for a solution-driven commitment from the international development community to tackle widespread anti-Black racism inherent within its institutions.
Among numerous recommendations, we recommend the international development community to actively recruit and retain African & Diaspora women to serve in leadership roles, particularly within non-profit and development agencies which aim serve to serve Black communities. Need an example? Cue Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala of Nigeria became the World Trade Organization's new Director-General last month.  She is the first woman and African to hold this title. With the majority of WTO members being developing countries, she has a pivotal seat at the table when ensuring that these countries are able to benefit from participating in international trade and from the multilateral trading system.
Join our solution-driven critical conversation on ending anti-Black racism in Women's Rights & Feminist global spaces on March 11 at 3pm GMT! Be sure to email us to RSVP 📧
