Women’s Empowerment and Equality
March 8, 2013 Casablanca, Morocco
Annually on March 8th, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and recognize their achievements. The Morocco MEPI Alumni Local Chapter, the Moroccan Center for Civic Education, celebrated International Women’s Day 2013 by organizing a workshop for the benefit of a group of divorced, battered and disadvantage women of Azhar Association, a MEPI granted NGO.
Under the theme “Women’s Empowerment and Equality” the workshop was intended to increase women’s awareness and understanding of their rights, build their capacity and provide them with the knowledge and skills which would give them the boost they need to be successful entrepreneurs.
The workshop gave women insights into the fundamentals of business development and equipped them with the knowledge and skills in business and entrepreneurial thinking, providing examples of best practices in the management of gender-based income-generating activities.
The event was crowned with presenting special gifts for women as a symbol of appreciation, support and recognition.
