Female Ambassadors of Belgian Diversity

Host: Minister of Foreign Affairs Philippe Goffin
Event: Female Ambassadors of Belgian Diversity,
on the occasion of International Women’s Day 2020
Date: 6 March 2020



I had the pleasure to been invited by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Belgium, Philippe Goffin, to attend an event in honour of International Women's Day. On this symbolic day, the Minister wanted to pay attention to women's rights, non-discrimination and diversity. The event welcomed notable women with ties to migration, as well as representatives of the diplomatic community and Belgian government. The event took place in the Egmont Palace and kicked off with a panel of women of migrant background, who are active in the field of diversity, sharing their successes, challenges and obstacles.
