2021 Women PeaceMakers Event — Virtual
Thu, Apr 22, 2021 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time (UTC-7)
The Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice is pleased to invite you to the 2021 Women PeaceMakers event!
The Kroc School’s signature
Women PeaceMakers (WPM) event returns on April 22, 2021 – and this time, we’re going virtual! Tune in from your corner of the world to learn from and with this year’s four extraordinary women leaders about the powerful role women play in negotiating peace.
Each year, the WPMs are selected from a competitive set of applicants based on their accomplishments and expertise related to a given research focus. For 2020-2021, the WPMs are focused on a critical topic: how international peacebuilding organizations can better partner with local women peacebuilders to address the closing spaces and increased insecurity women are currently facing when working to end cycles of violence.
During this Kroc School signature event, you’ll hear more about these efforts, plus:
Real stories about what it’s like being a woman peacebuilder in the Covid era
Insights about the challenges and opportunities of being on the front lines and in the backrooms of shaping more peaceful societies
Ideas for how we can bring more equity, justice, and compassion to our communities.
This interactive event will include a mixture of engaging discussion featuring the WPMs, videos that give a closer look at the WPMs in action, and a Q&A with our changemaking audience.
