The IGWG organizes regular in-person and virtual events where members from around the world can learn from and connect with each other. These events may be thematic, such as a focus on recent research in the GBV field, or dedicated to capacity strengthening, such as integrating participatory and inclusive evaluation and learning methods in gender transformative global health programming. Our annual IGWG Plenary creates space for members to meet in person and provide feedback on the network as a whole each year.

Presentations and recordings of IGWG events are available online so you can find past events you missed or want to revisit. The presentation materials are also available.

Not the Usual Suspects: Engaging Male Champions of Women, Peace and Security

October 13, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

While men still dominate leadership roles within national and international security structures, they have remained on the sidelines of the Women, Peace, and Security movement. Even as awareness of Women, Peace, and Security has grown, efforts to engage men have been ad hoc and good practices have not been shared, especially at the policy level.

The Women in Public Service Project is pleased to welcome Our Secure Future and the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security to the Wilson Center for a public panel conversation on the current level of men’s engagement in Women, Peace and Security and what steps we can take together to encourage more male allies to join the movement.

Please join us at 9:00am for coffee and refreshments. The panel conversation will begin promptly at 9:30am.
