4W Summit on Women, Gender, and Well-being

April 12 @ 4:00 pm - April 14 @ 5:00 pm


Join us for the 2018 4W Summit on Women, Gender and Well-being, with the theme of  Our Bodies, Our Earth: Voice, Violence, and Peacemaking.

We are bringing together prominent global leaders, national and international scholars, practitioners, students, artists, and community members to share information and experiences and build ongoing networks around timely challenges related to women and well-being.

Plan to join participants from  across the disciplines for a program of speakers and presenters addressing feminist perspectives on women, gender and voice in research, scholarship, program development, pedagogy, curriculum, creative work, and/or community activism. Presenters have been encouraged to draw upon the range of perspectives on gender and social justice to examine the present and future of well-being and empowerment for women, girls and their families, in Wisconsin and the world.

The Summit will begin Thursday, April 12, 2018 at 4:00 with the Soffa Keynote Lecture by Najma Ahmed Abdi, Somali leader and peace-builder. A program of concurrent sessions will be offered throughout Friday and Saturday, interspersed with 4 plenary presentations by local and national activists, artists, scholars, and educators.
