Embassy N’Djamena celebrates women

Embassy N’Djamena hosted a celebration of women at their annual International Women’s Day gathering, March 12. Chargé d’Affaires David Gilmour opened the event in the embassy’s courtyard; then, a panel discussed gender parity and ways to empower women. The female speakers on the panel were chosen based on their current positions, which are historically staffed by men—including a locally employed (LE) staff Local Guard Force supervisor, an LE staff maintenance foreman, and a U.S. Marine. The panel also featured two male supervisors who expressed how they have contributed to encouraging females to apply for such positions.
