Event Date: 
March 24, 2012 - 14:00 - 18:00

To celebrate Women's History Month and its recognition by the United Nations, the Woodstock Theological Center is gathering key thinkers and leaders for a conversation about empowering the next generation of women. In addition to addressing critical issues facing women around the world today, it will focus attention on the stated commitment of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) to enable women's leadership. This gathering is intended to be an intergenerational conversation so women and men in leadership positions in both society and the church, from secondary schools, and from area colleges and universities are all encouraged to attend. This symposium will be held at the Bunn Inter-Cultural Center (ICC) at Georgetown University from 2:00-6:00PM. Paid parking is available in the Leavey Center Garage accessible from Reservoir Road (Georgetown Hospital entrance). A light reception will follow.
