Offer: Call for Proposals: 2012 AWID International Forum on Women’s Rights and Development
The AWID International Forum on Women’s Rights and Development is both a conference and a call to action. The largest recurring event of its kind, the AWID Forum brings together women’s rights leaders and activists from around the world every three to four years to strategize, network, celebrate, and learn in a highly charged atmosphere that fosters deep discussions and sustained personal and professional growth
The 2012 Call for Proposals is now open
Transforming economic power... are you up to the challenge?
Are you willing to move beyond your comfort zone? To question your usual thinking? To engage with actors outside of your every day activism or workplace? Are you ready to build alliances across boundaries so that together we can transform economic power?
Through the 2012 AWID Forum, we aim to explore how economic power is impacting on women and the planet, and to facilitate connections among the very diverse groups working on these issues from both human rights and justice approaches so that together we contribute to stronger, more effective strategies to advance women's rights and justice.
Contribute to shaping the conversation - and the strategies - at the 2012 AWID Forum by submitting a proposal to organize a session. Submission deadline: May 27, 2011.
