WIIS RELEASES NEW PROGRESS REPORT ON "WOMEN IN PEACE & SECURITY CAREERS: U.S. EXECUTIVE BRANCH"

Gender Equality for Global Security: Women in Peace and Security Careers

April 15, 2010, 11:00am-1:00pm

Please RSVP at: http://genderequalityglobalsecurity.eventbrite.com/

At the highest levels of the U.S. government, women are
increasingly occupying high-ranking, visible power positions in
national security and foreign policy. There have been great strides in
recent decades, but it is also clear that much more needs to be done to
support women's leadership.

The new Women in International
Security (WIIS) Progress Report on Women in Peace and Security Careers:
US Executive Branch is the first report to examine women's
representation and career experiences in international security in the
U.S. Government sector. The report includes a series of key findings
and recommendations from these extensive discussions with women about
representation, leadership, mentoring, and work-life balance. A panel
of USIP and WIIS experts will discuss the report's implications and the
next steps to fulfilling its recommendations. Please join us for a
working lunch and world cafe discussion session.
