Inclusive Security and U.S. Department of State Announce Forum for Innovative Approaches to Global Threats

   •    July 27, 2015

Policy Forum

This fall, we will mark 15 years since the UN Security Council passed a landmark resolution recognizing women’s vital roles in peace and security. Since then, the world has confronted unimagined challenges, from rising violent extremism to cybersecurity risks. These frontiers offer opportunities to innovate and apply hard-earned lessons.

This is the moment to reflect, and to chart the way forward.

On October 14, 2015, Inclusive Security, in association with the U.S. Department of State, will bring together individuals with diverse global perspectives to devise inclusive responses to the world’s most pressing problems. The cornerstone of these approaches will be the knowledge that women are fundamental to the success of peace and security. They fill essential roles as negotiators, mediators, activists, technical advisors, policewomen, and much more. Research and experience tell us that when women are included, peace is more likely to last.

At the Newseum in Washington, DC, we will gather high-level U.S. government officials with women leaders and other innovative thinkers from around the world. Together, we will mark 15 years of progress and apply our collective insights to transform the next 15 years—and beyond.

More information, and a livestream link, will be available closer to the event. This forum is by invitation only. For more information, please contact us.
