Women’s Leadership: Public Service and Global Health is organized by Smith College and co-sponsored by Smith College and the U.S. State Department as part of the Women in Public Service Project.
This intensive, four-day interactive workshop — October 17–20, 2012 — reflects the overall goal of WPSP: to increase the participation and efficacy of women in all spheres of public service.
Day 1 was a great success, and our second day is already underway with a fantastic group of speakers!
