Since 2004, AWSJ has sponsored an annual lecture series, bringing national and international speakers to campus, to highlight and discuss some of the most important social and economic justice issues of the day.
Keynote Speaker: Sheryl WuDunn, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, and co-author of Half the Sky
The goal of the conference is to give participants the opportunity to share their stories about how gender has impacted their lives and the lives of others and to give them tools to seek justice locally and globally.
The keynote address at 7 p.m. will conclude the day and be delivered by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Sheryl WuDunn, co-author of Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide.
Workshops and panel presentations will be 75 minutes long and will be held at 9:25 a.m., 10:50 a.m., and 1:40 p.m., with additional workshops and round table discussions from 12:15-1:30 p.m. during lunch. From 3-4:15p.m., we will screen a selection from the documentary Half the Sky, followed by a discussion with Sheryl WuDunn.
Presenters are invited to join the AWSJ committee for dinner at 5:30 p.m. We invite faculty, staff, students, and community members to present workshops or panels, which are intended to be interactive and to give participants information, courage, and skills to seek justice in their community and world.
