Video Premiere | Paige Alexander @TEDWomen: Information Is Power

One of the most vital resources for women to exercise their rights and realize their full potential is information — information about government services and regulations, about educational and business opportunities, about child care and health programs. 

Tune in on Feb. 15 at noon for the premiere of Carter Center CEO Paige Alexander's TEDWomen 2023 talk, detailing how the Center’s Inform Women, Transform Lives project provides ways for women all over the world to have a more meaningful voice and make better decisions for themselves, their families, and their communities.
