Our digital panels are offered monthly to the public. If you are looking to become a more conscious leader and decision maker, these 1-hour panels can help provide the essential skills and direction you need.
About the Event
Afghanistan continues to be a place of violence and instability, especially for women. Because of this, evacuation for women seeking to leave Afghanistan has been ongoing. Last month, the Taliban announced that women would be allowed to work and attend school—unlike the last time they were in power. However, Taliban officials directed that for now, women should stay home, on the grounds that Taliban forces are untrained and may hurt women. Many human rights groups question whether the Taliban will ever reverse this supposedly temporary stay-home policy.
What can be done? What can you do?
Join us, along with a panel of experts on Thursday, September 23rd from 5-6:30 pm who will examine the current crisis, predictions for the coming years, and new efforts to protect and support the women of Afghanistan.
