Why Women of Faith Matter for Global Leadership

Room 701A
Description: 
This presentation will address what a global institution like the UN has done to engage with diverse faith leadership in the last decade. The necessity for leadership by women of faith to serve as a moral compass for current developments around the nexus of religion and foreign affairs will be covered along with current global trends around engaging religious actors. The discussion will conclude with a vision for a conscious and better-coordinated effort by and for women of faith around the world in order to strengthen collaboration and facilitate accountability to deliver objectives of sustainable development, human rights, peace, and security.
