Cherie spoke on the topic of how technology can support women's enterprise development and touched on the perceptions and practice of including information and communication technologies in development programmes for women.

On the 21st of May, Cherie spoke at the Oxford Forum for Women in the World Economy hosted by Oxford Saїd Business School. The Inaugural theme was "women as entrepreneurs".

Oxford Saїd Business School issued the following statement: "Research indicates that stimulating entrepreneurship among women is necessary for continued innovation, and to combat poverty and contribute to global economic growth.

This Forum will address issues of employment, investment, consumption, and philanthropy, and explore the requirements for building a business environment conducive to successful women's enterprises in countries around the world.
In order to guide future efforts by companies, governments, and entrepreneurs, the Forum will focus on identifying important gaps in knowledge about the motivations and obstacles surrounding women's entrepreneurship. The discussion will focus on true challenges to unearth important underlying constraints, to identify genuinely successful programmes, rather than operate under conventional assumptions."
