On June 16, 2014, FHI 360 will host a one-day summit in Washington, DC, to discuss a range of gender issues in development.

The summit will provide exciting opportunities for participants to discuss the critical intersections between organizational gender mainstreaming and programmatic gender integration, how women’s empowerment contributes to gender equality, and the role of donors in setting expectations for gender integration.

The program (PDF) will feature engaging panels and interactive discussions that bring together development practitioners, gender experts, funders and policymakers from development organizations, bilateral and corporate foundation donors, and research institutions.

The summit’s keynote speaker will be Susan A. Markham, Senior Gender Coordinator, U.S. Agency for International Development.

Other confirmed speakers include Vikki Stein (USAID), Sally Gear (UK aid), Joy Marini (Johnson & Johnson), Beth Mitchneck (National Science Foundation), Amy Babchek (Nike Foundation), Theresa Hwang (CARE USA), Dr. Patricia T. Morris (dTS), Aparna Mehrotra (UN Women), Sarah Thorn (Walmart) and Maryce Ramsey (FHI 360).
