Women in Political and Social Sectors
October 29, 2014 - November 2, 2014
This project, with participants from Australia, Georgia, Lebanon, Ireland, Vietnam, Iraq, and Turkey, will examine the U.S. experience in supporting women’s contribution to the workplace and public life. Participants will examine private sector and local, state and federal government initiatives and programs that encourage women’s political participation and representation in public office. They will also explore and evaluate public and private sector strategies to increase women’s access to education, economic opportunities and health care.
International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program
Each year, over 250 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.
By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural and educational ties with the rest of the world.
