Nigerian Women Against Violence International Conference to be Hosted by the Global Center for Women and Justice on May 22-24, 2013
The conference will bring together women from Nigeria, Kenya and the United States with the mission of working together through brainstorming and collaboration to come up with strategies to decrease domestic violence, human trafficking and violence against women.
With the goal of equipping the women to combat these issues in their own country, speakers will share best practices and long-term solutions for moving the nation of Africa to peace. This conference will be a great “cross-cultural opportunity to learn,” the coordinator for the GCWJ, Alexis Miller, said. It will be a time to interact with women from different cultures with the purpose of joining hands to play an active role in peace making, peace keeping and peace building.
Conference speakers will include the director of the GCWJ, Sandra Morgan; the director and professor of nursing, Dr. Mary Wickman; and an astute health management and health research consultant, Dr. Kaka Ahmed El-Yakub. Dr. Yakub is also a respected nurse/midwife tutor and health administrator.
The event will be held at Vanguard University. Registration for this special event is $50, which does not include meals.
