Youth in Business: Pitching for Gender Equality (A video competition for International Women’s Day 2019 hosted by ITC)

The International Trade Centre celebrates International Women’s Day through the video competition “Youth in Business: Pitching for Gender Equality”. Business school students from around the world are invited to participate in this challenge by submitting a 3-minute long video with an innovative pitch on how to support women entrepreneurs in a specific sector, country, and region and how this will contribute to gender equality.

A jury of five global leaders (including EIF's Deputy Director Annette Ssemuwemba) will review the videos and select a winner – taking into account feedback from a live audience – during an award ceremony at ITC in Geneva on 7th March 2019. The winner/winning team will be awarded travel and accommodation for one individual to the World Export Development Forum 2019 to interact with business leaders from around the world, participate in sessions and access an international business network.
