Women in Global Health & Development
February 1, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm$25
Women working in global health & development at different points in their careers will likely need to navigate issues of gender politics, practicalities of international travel, in-country cultural and social attitudes and practices specific to women, and varying security risks. Join Global Washington and WGHA for an afternoon of getting to know and learning from women with deep experience in global health & development. Women leaders share their professional journey, focusing on the challenges they encountered, how they maneuvered them, and what they learned along the way. Learn from presenters, meet other women in your field, and leave with a fresh perspective on long-standing professional and personal challenges.
Speakers: Emily Bancroft (President, VillageReach), Willa Marth (VP Equity & Global Programs, Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands), Fatema Sumar (Deputy VP, Millennium Challenge Corporation), Andrea Voytko (Deputy Director, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation)
