The W20 Germany Summit took place April 24 - 26 in Berlin. More than 400 experts from around the world discussed how to strengthen women’s economic empowerment - with the focus on digital inclusion, financial inclusion, labor market participation, and making the W20 agenda an integral part of the G20 process. The U.S. Consulate General invites you to continue this profoundly important conversation on gender equality here in Hamburg. Join us for an inspiring lecture by Michael Kimmel and a panel discussion that brings together U.S. and German voices, perspectives, insights, and best practices.
