CFHI is proud to convene a Forum on the Empowerment of Women to be held at the United Nations Church Center on September 15, 2010, in conjunction with the opening of the 65th Session of the United Nations General Assembly.
The Forum, entitled Successes and Challenges of Women in Leadership Roles in Traditionally Male-Dominated Environments, is an effort to shed light on the global effort to achieve Millennium Development Goal Number Three.
In government and NGO organizations worldwide, women are increasingly taking on leadership roles. What are women finding as they assume these roles? From the grassroots level to the executive level, women are succeeding in roles heretofore held only by men. Are there common experiences across these different levels? Are there common challenges? What cultural issues need to be considered? What strategies are most successful?
Join the audience along with a distinguished panel including CFHI Medical Director, Jessica Evert, MD, and direct from New Delhi, CFHI India Coordinator, Hema Pandey, as these topics and others are discussed in this lively forum. Gain insights and share your own story. Join us September 15th at 1:00 PM at 777 UN Plaza (44th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues) 8th floor, Boss Room. The forum is free and open to the general public but we do ask that you RSVP. Please click here to see more information here and the email address to RSVP.
