Empowering Women in Developing Countries Panel 

March 2, 2011
12:15-1:30PM 
in the Atrium of Van Munching Hall

The School of Public Policy is pleased to host “Empowering Women in Developing Countries: Solutions and Policies,” to explore the issues raised in the University of Maryland's First Year Book, HALF THE SKY.  Ioana Petrescu, Assistant Professor in International Development, will represent the School as part of an all-female panel designed to explore the large policy issues while addressing what specifically can be done to help solve the issues raised in the book.  The conversation will also discuss how University of Maryland students can prepare themselves through their educational programs to effectively attack the broad social issues that the book so clearly identifies. 

The panel includes:
Caren Grown  
Senior Gender Advisor
Bureau of Policy, Planning and Learning
USAID

Jody Zall Kusek
Advisor, Health and Nutrition Group
The World Bank

Nelly P. Stromquist
Professor of International Education Policy
