The 1818 Society is an association of World Bank retirees who continue to engage in development issues. The Gender Thematic Group is committed to fostering gender equality and to having women’s talents and economic roles recognized and their voices heard. It also supports the continued implementation of the World Bank Gender Strategy and provides opportunities to its member to explore new ideas and engage in new responsibilities. This event is a unique opportunity to engage with Yassamin Maleknasr on her achievements as an actress and film-maker and to discover through her work the remarkable lives and contributions of so many women and men across the Middle East and beyond.
