The Association of Women in International Trade (WIIT) President Evelyn Suarez is proud to announce a new WIIT Program Section on Anti-Corruption and Corporate Social Responsibility co-chaired by Kathryn Nickerson of the U.S. Department of Commerce and Saskia Zandieh of Miller & Chevalier.
According to Ms. Suarez, the new Program Section adds a new dimension to WIIT programming, as the Program Sections are the incubators for its well-known Trade Talks. The new WIIT Program Section addresses anti-corruption and corporate social responsibility issues in the context of international trade, which will work well with our other Program Sections covering regions of the world and areas such as the new “Customs, Logistics and Transportation” Program Section.
In October, the Committee organized a panel event on the demand side of bribery in international business, and on the evening of Thursday, December 1, 2016, the Committee is co-hosting a panel discussion and networking event focused on France’s new anti-corruption legislation.
In recognition of International Anti-Corruption Day on December 9, the Committee is cosponsoring with the Center for International Private Enterprise a panel discussion on the new ISO anti-bribery management systems standard, ISO 37001.
Both events are in the District of Columbia.
WIIT welcomes all those, regardless of gender, interested in this area or any of the other areas of focus.
