CT Strategies Hosts the ‘Women in International Trade’ for a Happy Hour with the WIIT President

On Wednesday August 22nd, CT Strategies hosted the Women in International Trade (WIIT) for a Happy Hour with WIIT President for 2018-19, Lisa Schroeter. WIIT works to promote the professional development of women in international trade and business and to raise public awareness of the importance of international trade to economic development. WIIT does this through: professional development, educational offerings, and social activities.

CT Strategies’, Allen Gina, welcomed Ms. Schroeter, who also serves as the Global Director of Trade and Investment for The Dow Chemical Company, and about 35 attendees from various private sector and government roles. Mr. Gina spoke of the importance of international trade and WIIT’s mission in continuing to promote women in the international trade industry.

Schroeter thanked CT Strategies for its continued support of WIIT and reflected on her own career and the relatively new concept of ‘women in trade’ at the beginning of her career. She emphasized that WIIT’s mission is to be a ‘shared space’ for women to network and impart knowledge to develop and further trade.

CT Strategies is a proud sponsor of WIIT and was happy to welcome Lisa Schroeter as the new President and provide networking opportunities for private and public sector individuals in the trade industry. CT Strategies will be hosting another event with WIIT entitled ‘Women in Customs: A Career Perspective’, a discussion with notable women from the public and private sectors in the field of customs and border management on September 13th at CT Strategies headquarters in Dupont Circle. In an intimate conversation over lunch, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the career paths of these high-profile women, as well as discuss some of the challenges they’ve faced, and lessons learned throughout their careers in the traditionally male-dominated environment of customs. CT Strategies and WIIT invites all those interested to register
