Nandini Chami was a panelist at the session: 'Towards an empowerment scorecard for women in e-commerce' during  UNCTAD e-Commerce week in Geneva, Switzerland.

The pane deliberated on the following questions:

To what extent has the global digital economy and the current e-commerce regime been successful in furthering women’s empowerment and gender equality?

What kind of policy spaces are vital for women’s empowerment at the national level? Consequently, what should not be traded away in e-commerce negotiations?

How can we build an initial set of parameters to evaluate e-commerce policy systems for gender inclusiveness?
