Description: Celebrate International Women's Day at Hamline on Saturday, March 11 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Anderson Center. International Women’s Day is designed to catalyze activism and highlight advancements and challenges in women’s rights and equality. The focus of the day will be on women’s economic empowerment in the changing world of work, the priority theme of the 61st session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. Sheryl WuDunn will offer the morning keynote, with workshops and opportunities to engage with organizations to follow. More information on the workshops is to come. This event is co-sponsored by The Advocates for Human Rights, Justice Office of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet and Consociates, Hamline University's Wesley Center, and Hamline University's Women's Resource Center.
Sheryl WuDunn is the first Asian-American reporter to win a Pulitzer Prize, a business executive, and best-selling author. With her husband Nicholas Kristof, she is co-author of A Path Appears: Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity and Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. In 2011, Newsweek cited WuDunn as one of the “150 Women Who Shake the World”. Ms. WuDunn lectures on economic, political, and social topics related to women in the developing world. Currently, she works at a small banking boutique helping growth companies, including those operating in the emerging markets.
