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.

Women and War: Securing a More Peaceful Future

January 25, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am


Woodrow Wilson Center
View Organizer Website

Women’s participation is key to peace: Peace processes that include women are more successful and sustainable, and societies that empower women are more peaceful than those that do not. But lack of access to women’s health services can keep women from fully participating in political, security, and military leadership positions. To realize the demographic peace dividend, young women and men in developing countries need the healthcare, education, and employment that will prepare them to build a more peaceful and productive society.
