The Edelman Trust Barometer 2020 Report

Edelman’s Trust Barometer® is an annual global survey measuring attitudes about trust in business, government, NGOs and the media. You can find an Executive Summary and the full report here.

“The 2020 Edelman Trust Barometer reveals that despite a strong global economy and near full employment, none of the four societal institutions that the study measures—government, business, NGOs and media—is trusted. The cause of this paradox can be found in people’s fears about the future and their role in it, which are a wake-up call for our institutions to embrace a new way of effectively building trust: balancing competence with ethical behavior.”

Foreign Policy Interrupted Newsletter

While this should probably go under Women Leaders and Gender Parity Resources below, FPI’s weekly newsletter highlights what’s going on around the world and in my favorite format: quick-read descriptions so you can pick and choose where to do a deeper dive. FPI is on a mission to help women foreign policy experts get by-lined.

Beth Hand’s Letter to U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations: Women’s Entrepreneurship and Economic Empowerment Act of 2018

I advocated for passage of this bill to “improve programs and activities relating to women’s entrepreneurship and economic empowerment that are carried out by the U.S. Agency for International Development” in developing countries. The bill is the Women’s Entrepreneurship and Economic Empowerment (WEE) Act of 2018 (H.R. 5480).

Why? Because we are humanitarians, for increased peace and security, and because if you, like me, are a female and lead a business, it’s important to advocate for other women just as others advocated for us and made our lives and businesses possible. Read my letter of thanks and encouragement to the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations to pass this bill. As of January 10, 2019, it passed. Thank you to the White House, the Senator Committee on Foreign Relations, and my Virginia senator, Senator Tim Kaine, for passing this important bill.
