This was the first women’s luncheon to be hosted as part of this conference. Jolynn spoke about the importance of the entrepreneurial and tech communities contributing to the global gender equality movement, the opportunities presented by the new Women, Peace and Security Act, and the challenges we still face in realizing the full rights of women.
