As part of a project funded by the Canadian Embassy in Beirut and run by Mercy Corps, the North Local Economic Development Agency, LEDA, held on January 23 a dialogue session entitled “Women economic development”. The event is organized in collaboration with LEDA’s local partners including, the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture in Tripoli and the North, the Lebanese University (Faculty of Social Sciences) and Al Midan Association. The seminar which took place at the Faculty of Social Sciences- LU, Third Branch, covered a number of topics related to gender discrimination and challenges facing women and youth’s access to the labor market. The session began with a live testimony from Hanin Hassan and Maha Shaker followed by lecturers who spoke about their own experiences. The event represented an opportunity for the Faculty’s students to inquire about the shared experiences and to take notes in the areas of empowering women and youth. (Al Akhbar, January 24, 2020)
