The full agenda is below.

Ahead of Chile's 2019 APEC Host Year, this event will provide a platform to develop a key policy priority for Chile: expanding women's economic participation in the Asia Pacific region. Leading experts will discuss how data can better inform policies around women's entrepreneurship and women's workforce participation. Companies engaged in women's economic empowerment work will discuss why investing in this work makes economic and business sense and aligns to their strategic interest in the region. The event will explore how APEC as a regional organization can be leveraged to fill gaps in order to continue to improve women's economic participation across the Asia Pacific region and how Chile can help build on APEC momentum and continue to impact meaningful interventions in 2019.
