 Our Objectives:

  1. To create a space for women from the MENA (Middle East/North Africa) Region and the US to have an inspiring convening of connections, conversations and relationship-building through a dialogical engagement with old and new paradigms.
  2. To transform conflict into more sustainable, peaceful relationships that are based upon principles of justice and equality to build support networks that cross geographic, political and cultural boundaries.
  3. To facilitate new understandings of political and social problems through the lens of women leaders and to pursue potential solutions for which no answers or pathway currently exist.
