With International Women's Day just around the corner, World Bank Live will host an interactive chat on gender and empowerment on March 6 at 11 a.m. EST (16:00 GMT).

A specialist panel — including World Bank Vice President of Sustainable Development Rachel Kyte, World Bank Director of Gender and Development Jeni Klugman, gender experts, and field researchers from around the world — will discuss how women and men overcome the challenges posed by gender norms.

The live chat will explore stories from virtual participants alongside stories from the latest World Bank gender report, "On Norms and Agency: Conversations with Women and Men in 20 Countries" to identify successful paths to empowerment for all.

While the chat doesn't officially begin until March 6, the panelists are already taking your questions — Share your ideas and post your questions now.
