GCNL’s executive director, Ms. Dina Harake met with UN Women to discuss potential collaborations for enhancing gender equality, women’s economic empowerment, and protection within the private sector, including the companies that are members in the GCNL. In this respect, GCNL and UN Women are discussing the modality for this cooperation and have already identified the areas of common interest.
GCNL previously partnered with UN Women and the Blessing Foundation to support the initiative of “SheMinLebnen”, which was launched under the patronage of H.E. the Prime Minister in May 2018. This initiative supports women in rural and urban areas within Lebanon, who are skilled in handcrafts to post their products through E-Platform after helping them develop their competencies to produce trendy and refined products that can attract local and international markets in cooperation with five international designers.
