Dr. Edit Schlaffer, Founder and Executive Director of Women without Borders/SAVE, will soon be speaking at the Women & Power conference at the Omega Institute in New York! Dr. Schlaffer will be sharing a panel with Archana Kapoor, our SAVE representative from India, and Arshi Saleem Hashmi, our SAVE representative from Pakistan. Together, they will address the role of women in countering violent extremism in India, Pakistan and the world.
Around the globe, every day, in all sectors of society, women are breaking leadership molds, boldly demonstrating that the way it’s always been is not the way it has to be. They are changing the status quo of power, opening new paths and possibilities, not only for women, but for everybody.
At this year’s Women & Power conference, we bring together creative and courageous women to inspire you to plot your own breakthrough path—one of change, growth, and innovation—at home, at work, and in the world.
The conference is an exploration and celebration of what is possible when women trust their inventiveness to solve some of humanity’s most pressing problems. In keynotes, panels, conversations, and breakout workshops, we hear from women who are using their power and passion to make real change. Prepare to be inspired to make a difference in your own corner of the world.
