Fifteen years ago, the UN Security Council passed a landmark resolution recognizing women’s vital roles in building peace and security. But inclusion isn’t just another box to check. Collaborating with women leaders allows those tackling violent conflict to excel at their mission and improves prospects for stability. The question is: “How can we do it effectively?”

On October 15, Inclusive Security—in association with the US Department of State—hosted a dynamic, multimedia event bringing together male and female defense and foreign policy experts with women leaders from more than 20 conflict-affected countries, including Afghanistan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Guatemala, Libya, Nigeria, Northern Ireland, Pakistan, South Sudan, Sudan, and Syria. The event was held at the Newseum in Washington, DC and livestreamed across the world.

The program included a reflection on progress over the last 20 years, examples of policymakers and women leaders working together to create inclusive peace, a look at future security threats, and much more.
