On 12 December 2019, the WE EMPOWER G7 Team hosted "Assessing the Impact of Trade Agreements on Women’s Economic Empowerment" webinar.

This webinar explored ways to measure the success of trade agreements on women’s economic empowerment by looking at the opportunities for women exporters and women in the labour market economy. The session focused on the recent Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) and analyzed the model for measuring and capturing inclusive gender-sensitive data to assess the impact of trade agreements and better inform inclusive trade agreements.
