The American Association of University Women Educational Foundation,
which has provided educational and research support for international women
graduate students since 1917, and the Educational Testing Service invite
you to participate in AAUW's second international biennial symposium.

The symposium will provide policy-makers, scholars, and practitioners an
opportunity to explore how women have used their education to address
four key global issues, especially in emerging nations:
· Literacy improvement
· Peace education and conflict resolution
· Governance
· Education for people with disabilities
Interactive presentations, which will include panel discussions,
demonstration/poster sessions, and dialogues, will enable participants
to fulfill five primary objectives of the symposium:
·Exchanging information and ideas on the ways in which women are
making an impact on the world
·Identifying new research, policy, and program strategies to
advance education for women and girls
·Establishing a forum for reporting on current programs and
projects that highlight women's progress in the four key areas
·Strengthening the network of emerging and established scholars
who can build on dialogues begun at the symposium and collaborate on
research activities across national boundaries
·Cultivating discussion of issues addressed in the first
international symposium, International Perspectives: The Political,
Social,and Economic Impact of Education for Women and Girls.

Topics will include women's roles in literacy, higher education, and
economic development; the role of women's nongovernmental organizations;
and women in leadership and decision-making positions.
