CAIRO – 1 November 2017: The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) opened a pilot course on gender equality and industrial development in Bahrain to reflect on the terms under which women have been included in the industrialization process.
Twenty-eight government officials and private sector representatives from 24 countries in Africa and the Arab region gathered to discuss ways in which industrialization directly affects women’s roles and participation in the labor force and economic life.
The five-day training program aimed to provide participants with an opportunity to learn about various tools for effectively designing policies and strategies that promote inclusive and sustainable industrial development.
The course was organized in cooperation with the UNIDO Investment and Technology Promotion Office (ITPO) and the Arab International Center for Entrepreneurship and Investment (AICEI), and it is supported by the government of Finland and the Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa.
