By Aaron Humes: In town for a premier summit of women leaders to be held over the weekend, Vice-President of Liberia, Dr. Jewel Howard-Taylor, hosted a meet and greet with Mayor of Belmopan Sharon Palacio at the Belize Biltmore Plaza Hotel on Wednesday.
Paying his respects was Leader of the Opposition Moses “Shyne” Barrow, who held a candid introductory meeting at which he exchanged gifts with Dr. Taylor, symbolizing the strengthening of the bond between Belize and the Republic of Liberia.
Vice President Taylor will be the keynote speaker at the first-ever SHE4SHE Champions World Summit to be held on March 4-6 at the Belize Biltmore Plaza, hosted by the Belmopan City Council in collaboration with the Mayors’ Association.
“The event was borne out of Mayor Palacio’s personal desire to bring together women and girls from across the globe to commemorate International Women’s Month, and dialogue on issues pertaining to women and girls’ empowerment, gender equality, female leadership, economic empowerment, political participation, science, and technology,” read Mayor Palacio’s post, adding that the Summit “will provide the blueprint for future discourse on a plethora of issues relative to women empowerment, leadership, and governance”. According to Mayor Palacio, the Summit’s “powerful speeches and anecdotes” are expected “to inspire women on their collective abilities to lead”.
The Summit’s other invited guests include Ambassador Victoria Sulimani, Sierra Leone’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations; Rosanna Briceño, Belize’s Special Envoy for the Development of Families and Children; Dr. Toyin Harris, founder of Majestic Daughters; and Nicole Jackson, Mayor of Rice, Texas.
The event is to be held under the theme: “Towards Inclusive Governance in Public and Political Affairs”.
