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.
