Check out the newest WIIT Communique: International Perspectives. 
In this issue of WIIT Communiqué, we wanted to focus on our members with international upbringings to learn how their multicultural backgrounds influenced their careers in trade. Read more about how Yuri Unno, Moushami P. Joshi, Alina Zarr, and Jing Zhu use their unique perspectives to help them succeed in the international trade arena. 
Event Recap
WIT and the Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) Host Oct. 1 Event         
WIIT joined with the Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) for a reception to welcome the inaugural cohort of the ASPI Emerging Female Leaders program. On the scenic rooftop at McLarty Associates, WIIT members mingled with the visiting group of 7 up-and-coming women in trade from South Korea. ASPI Vice President and program host Wendy Cutler gave remarks introducing the group, along with McLarty managing partner Kellie Meiman Hock who highlighted the importance of supporting and mentoring fellow women in trade.
