SIS Global to Local: Girls' Education

, Virtual Meeting Room

Updated 2/22

Investing in girls’ education transforms communities, countries, and the world. Girls’ education strengthens economies and reduces inequality, contributing to more stable, resilient societies. But despite the evidence demonstrating how critical girls’ education is, gender disparities in education persist, even in some of the wealthiest cities and countries.

In honor of International Women's Day, join SIS professor Naomi Moland as she speaks with a group of women on the topic of girls’ education. The panelists will discuss the challenges girls face in gaining an education, the organizations and actions that are helping to combat those struggles, and the hope for all girls to build better futures for themselves and their families.
