Oxfam Executive Director Winnie Byanyima has rubbed shoulders with US President Donald Trump.

This was during the 44th G7 summit that was held on June 8–9, 2018, in La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada. This was the sixth time since 1981 that Canada has hosted the meetings.

In March, Byanyima was among the 10 women activists selected to the gender and equality advisory council to the Canadian presidency of the G7 member countries.

The G7 or Group of Seven, is a group consisting of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States.

These countries, with the seven largest advanced economies in the world, represent more than 62 percent of the global net wealth estimated at $280 trillion.
