“We need to just get out of the way and let these women lead.”- Larry Sampler
On Friday, March 12th, One Earth Future President, Larry Sampler, was invited to speak at the Amplifying Women’s Leadership in the Middle East panel discussion, hosted by the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA). As one of OEF’s programs, Our Secure Future was excited to attend the event and to participate in a fascinating dialogue between both panelists and audience members. Panelists included Susan Mollner of Beirut and Beyond, Imah Jodeh from Meet the Middle East, and moderator Aziza Zemrani of the Section on Effective and Sound Administration in the Middle East. We were particularly happy to see a familiar face—Emma Alpert from Just Vision—who attended OSF’s Curriculum Consortium in August, 2017 and presented Just Vision’s newest film Naila and the Uprising.
It was a privilege to participate in a panel on a topic so critical to the Women, Peace and Security movement alongside panelists with deep regional and cultural expertise. Thank you for ASPA for providing us with this opportunity!
