In honor of Women's History Month, the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton School of Public Service will host a dynamic panel on empowerment of women and girls. From women's suffrage movement in America to the Arab Spring, countless exceptional women have redefined their role in the world on their own terms. Yet the reality for many girls and women is still stark: over 60 million girls still do not have access to primary education. The education and empowerment of girls and women is not only a moral issue—it is also a critical economic issue. The panel discussion will explore the people and projects that are working to empower women and girls.
Panelists include: – Penny Abeywadena, Head of Girls & Women, Associate Director, Commitments with the Clinton Global Initiative – Jimmie Briggs, Co-Founder and Executive Director, Man Up Campaign – Ruby Johnson, General Co-Coordinator, FRIDA/The Young Feminist Fund – Jerry Jones, Chief Ethics and Legal Officer, EVP, Acxiom – Sarah Kambou, President, International Center for Research on Women – Immaculee Kayitare, Clinton School of Public Service Class of 2014 student from Kigali, Rwanda – Sarah Thorn, Senior Director, Federal Government Relations, Walmart
