Supporting Senegalese women peacekeepers

A dozen people are gathered around a water hand-pump

During his bilateral visit to Senegal in February 2020, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau participated in a roundtable with Senegalese women peacekeepers from the Armed Forces, Gendarmerie and National Police. This event offered an opportunity to highlight Canada and Senegal’s partnership in implementing the Elsie Initiative.

The Elsie Initiative allowed the PM to have a frank and open discussion with Senegalese women peacekeepers who have deployed to UN peace operations to better understand the challenges and opportunities women peacekeepers face.
