Women After War: New Challenges & Approaches to Landmine Clearance
About this Event
In Iraq, Sri Lanka, South Sudan, and all around the world, women are suiting up and heading into minefields to clear deadly remnants of war and make land safe for their families and communities. And yet mine clearance is often seen as a male-dominated field that women are discouraged from joining.
Join Mines Advisory Group (MAG) America and Women In International Security (WIIS) for a special networking event and panel discussion on the work of female deminers working in international development and security.
Featured speakers include Jane Cocking, CEO of MAG, and Dr. Chantal de Jonge Oudraat, President of Women In International Security. Hors d'oeuvres and refreshments will be provided.
