"Women and Global Change: Achieving Peace Through Empowering Women"
This year’s conference theme, "Women and Global Change: Achieving Peace Through Empowering Women" was inspired by the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize winners Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Leymah Bbowee, from Liberia and Tawakkol Karman from Yemen. The peace-building work each of these three women have endured and continue to work on to this day, has set in motion an empowering movement for social, political and economic change. This year’s conference is sure to inspire, educate, and transform how global movements are local movements.
Pre-Conference Kick Off
