On April 27, 2017, Sahana Dharmapuri, director of Our Secure Future, will present at the NATO High-Profile Event, “Gender Awareness in the Security and Defense Field.” Speakers will include representatives from NATO, the US Military, the Australian Defence Force, and the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations, among others.
Over the course of the day, national and international experts will critically examine gender mainstreaming as a component of security effectiveness. Panelists will address questions such as: How can we ensure that gender issues are integrated to make the field more effective? Which institutions are doing it well? How can we do it better?
All of the day’s events are free and open to the public, and will be held at the Peace & Justice Theatre at the University of San Diego. For more information, and to RSVP, visit the Eventbrite page here.
