Eighth International Women’s Policy Research Conference: When Women Gain, So Does the World
The conference theme centers on the reality that investing in women’s status globally is important not only for women themselves but is critical to the economic and social well-being of entire communities, institutions, and nations. For example, improving women’s economic opportunities promotes community health; women’s equality in the labor force leads to better business outcomes; and advancing women’s leadership holds the possibility to transform public policy at local, national, and global levels. IWPR invites policymakers, advocates, researchers, and practitioners from academia, labor unions, business, government, non-profits and NGOs, and the media to our international conference to share information and discuss policy strategy that can be used to improve the programs and policies around the world that protect and promote women and girls.
