Please join us for our 2012 Annual Conference as we gather national and international experts for a day-long conversation on women’s leadership.  The past 12 months have witnessed women stepping more forcefully into the public arena to assert and protect their rights, whether it was to protect pensions or demand democracy on the streets of Sri Lanka and Yemen, hold perpetrators of sexual violence accountable in the courts in the Balkans, or to include their voices in hearings on Capitol Hill.
 

This year's conference will focus on three areas: elected representation in the political arena, leading local organizations for change within civil society, and leadership in global post-conflict peacebuilding movements. Our distinguished speakers will highlight not only what work needs to be done for women to lead and participate, but also focus on areas where progress is being made.  Take a look at our conference agenda and exciting group of distinguished speakers!
