Pristina, March 22, 2022 – The American Chamber of Commerce in Kosovo organized a roundtable with the USAID Kosovo Mission Director Zeinah Salahi and the Women Leaders’ Committee of AmCham to discuss the role of USAID in supporting women empowerment in their areas of expertise.
Zeinah Salahi, USAID Kosovo Mission Director, said that part of women’s power is the expertise and the added value they bring to their professional area. Further, she added that the attention should be on the expertise women bring to the table as professionals, and not focus on gender. Additionally, Salahi said that the goal is to help everyone excel in their area of expertise, and as a result, the discussion changes and the narrative gets richer.
The Women Leaders present discussed the ways they can help the younger generation of women to succeed and excel. They stressed the importance of role models and guidance when choosing professions dominated by men.
