Monday, 12th of March

CDR is co-hosting with BDO LLP the third WWID event dedicated to women working in Fragile and Conflict Affected States (FCAS).


This session will explore the challenges women face working in this context, particularly where the incidence of gender-based or sexual violence may be high, and aims to provide a platform for women across the sector to exchange ideas, experiences and identify opportunities for future collaboration.

We are delighted to be joined by an exciting panel of development practitioners who will share their insights on the challenges and opportunities facing women working in the sector. Our guest speakers include: 



                              Stephanie Speck, Senior Communications Adviser - Prime Minister’s                                   Office Iraq, Aktis Strategy
