Gender Minister To Address Dubai Expo 2020 Today
 
Liberia's Gender, Children and Social Protection Minister Williametta E. Saydee-Tarr will on Today, December 1, 2021 address cross section of participants at the Women’s Pavilion Programme Visions and Journeys Event of the 2020 Dubai Expo. 
 
The Gender Boss is expected to roll out Liberia's transformative approach in uplifting women as well as outlining insidious challenges most Liberian women go through daily.
 
Minister Tarr will highlight amongst others the significance of Liberia passing into law of the Domestic Violence Act of 2019; the surge in appointment of women into key Cabinet positions; the declaration of free Education in all public schools that has seen the rise in enrollment and retention of girls; the creation of Gender and Social Inclusion Units in various Ministries and Agencies that is currently blustering gender mainstreaming in the formulation and implementation of government policies and programs; the decline in the number of reported sexual and gender-based violence cases which can be attributed to the launch of the Anti Sexual and Gender Based Violence Roadmap 2020-2022 and Rural Social Cash Program which is reducing poverty by directly giving cash to households that are mainly headed by women.
 
The Gender Minister will also touch on the firmed commitment and unflinching support from the Feminist-In-Chief H.E. Dr. George Manneh Weah in achieving Gender Equality which is the fulcrum of the Sustainable Development Goal #5. 
 
Additionally, she will share the Liberian Leader’s insistence that Gender Equality, which is a subset of the Pro Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development (PAPD), Pillar One, should be mainstreamed and prioritized by all government Institutions.
 
The Expo which is being held under the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’ is a platform for positive collaborative change. 
The organizers assert that the Expo principles are aligned perfectly with the values of the UAE, and with millions of visitors expected both on-site and online, the event will provide a unique opportunity to design and deliver a meaningful programme that accelerates the UAE's collective progress.
 
The Dubai Expo also provides an opportunity for invited countries to showcase their unique potential through displays of their cultural heritage, innovation and business opportunities. 
 
At this year's event, the Liberian delegation is headed by the Minister of State Without Portfolio, Trokon Kpui. Others are: Information Minister Ledgerhood Rennie, Labour Minister Cllr. Charles Gibson, Acting Public Works Minister, Ruth C. Collins, Maritime Commissioner Eugene Nagbe, Liberia's Culture Ambassador Julie Endee, Liberia News Agency Director General Kwame Oldpa Weeks, amongst others.
 
Gender, Children and Social Protection Minister Williametta E. Saydee-Tarr is being accompanied by her Deputy Minister for Research, Planning and Policy - Hassan Karneh and Assistant Minister for Administration, Mamensie Kabba.
