The organizing committee for an event tentatively planned for Fall 2021 is soliciting panel and abstract/poster proposals for the conference "Through the eyes of She: equity in health, education, business, and leadership for the African Woman in the 21st century,” which will convene the Yale community and key leaders from the international community through structured programming. The outcomes of the anticipated program will be important in guiding research, policy, and intervention development at Yale and beyond. We look forward to constructive discourse on advancing the health, education, economic vitality, and leadership capacity of women in Africa.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, June 25, 2021. See detailed guidance on what to include, and other information, here.
