The Association of Women in International Trade Honors Kate Clemans with Business Legacy Award

Washington – June 26, 2019: The Association of Women in International Trade honored two of C&M International’s (CMI) women leaders with its business legacy award: Kate Clemans, a member of CMI’s board of managers, and Doral Cooper, founder of CMI. The award recognizes women who have “made valuable contributions in their respective fields, not only to promoting trade liberalization, but to ensuring that the benefits of trade are recognized and shared across communities.”

Clemans, a strategic advisor with CMI, has experience in multilateral trade negotiations, bilateral market access issues, regulatory affairs, trade remedies, and safeguards issues. Clemans previously served as president of CMI, where she developed and had oversight for practice areas in corporate engagement with countries of the Asia Pacific region; U.S. trade and economic policies and regulation; partnerships for development, including in education; health and life sciences; agriculture and food; and global and regional trade and economic policies and regulation.

Honorees were recognized at the Association’s annual dinner alongside the 2019 “Woman of the Year” Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and lead on the renegotiation of NAFTA 2.0.
