The discussions will inform an upcoming World Bank report on Women's Voice, Agency and Participation, and will provide a forum for policymakers and civil society to discuss lessons and challenges. We will seek to identify good practices and successful interventions -- both what works and what does not -- and highlight key directions for advancing women's voice and agency.
