Women’s Rights and Countering Domestic Violence

December 7, 2014 - December 11, 2014

Cleveland will be hosting 10 visitors from Afghanistan for a program focused on addressing and preventing the issue of violence against women.  Visitors come from a range of fields including law enforcement, civil society, and government.  They will learn best practices on countering domestic abuse, protecting the rights of victims, and exploring initiatives to promote awareness and acceptance of women’s rights.

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. For more information, contact Ryan Ouellette, International Visitors Program Officer, at or click here.  To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here
