AMMAN — In celebration of National Women’s History Month, the Jordanian American Association of Washington, DC (JAADC) on Wednesday hosted Jordanian ambassador Dina Kawar as part of its Leadership Series (LS), a JAADC statement said.

Through these series, JAADC brings leaders from Jordan and the US to discuss issues of concern for both countries’ longstanding partnership.

The discussion tackled women’s rights and empowerment in Jordan; challenges and opportunities facing the Jordanian government as well as the private sector and civil society’s efforts to close the gender gap.

Kawar also discussed US-Jordan bilateral relations and the latest regional developments, including the Syria refugee crisis.

She commended the work of JAADC in strengthening the Jordanian-American community while emphasising the importance for Jordanian expatriate communities to organise and be civically engaged in their area.
