Please join the Women and Girls Empowered (WAGE) Global Consortium for a virtual panel discussion on Sept. 28 from 1:00pm to 2:30pm ET that will share findings from our Learning Agenda. WAGE programs take an integrated, intersectional, and multi-disciplinary approach to addressing gender-based violence (GBV), women peace and security (WPS) and women’s economic empowerment (WEE), through our ten initiatives spanning 15 countries. The WAGE Learning Agenda seeks to promote promising practices within integrated women’s and girl’s empowerment programming, understand what is already known about integrated programming, what gaps in experience and evidence exist, and bridging said gaps. 
The event will feature a policy discussion with:

  1. Kat Fotovat, Principal Deputy Director, US Department of State’s Secretary’s Office of Global Women’s Issues (S/GWI)
  2. Scott Carlson, ABA Associate Executive Director of Global Programs
