Jennifer Diaz, President of Diaz Trade Law and OWIT International, organized and led the OWIT International 18th World Conference from October 24-25, 2018 in Nairobi, Kenya.

In response to global demand and burgeoning trends in trade modernization, OWIT International brought back its 18th World Conference. In recognition of Nairobi’s vast potential to engage in global trade, OWIT International selected it’s OWIT Chapter in Nairobi, Kenya as the host for this year’s conference. On October 24-25, 2018, OWIT members around the globe converged with supporters and experts in their field to empower both the local community and business leaders throughout the world. Day one consisted of a capacity-building workshop for local women entrepreneurs seeking to take their business across borders. Day Two was a conference for trade practitioners and policy makers from around the world discussing best practices, what’s next for the future of trade, and what women’s roles should be in that future. OWIT greatly appreciated all participants and valued-partners. We look forward to next year’s conference taking place October 24-26, 2019, in Tampa, FL.
