American Women for International Understanding (AWIU) is hosting its Seventh Annual Career Opportunities in International Relations (COIR) Symposium on Friday, October 20, 2023. The symposium will be held at the International Student House in Washington, D.C.
"Women Leading: Building Bridges of Peace, Equity, and Security" will be the topic of presentations, panels and discussion groups.
The day-long event will feature speakers, panels, break-out discussions, gratis lunch, and opportunities to network with prominent women diplomats, career State Department and international organization experts, and representatives of non-profits dedicated to urgent global issues such as women’s rights, education, income generation, the environment, and law.
COIR events provide opportunities for young women to learn about careers in international affairs and engage with women leaders in the field. AWIU was founded over 50 years ago to promote woman-to-woman interaction and understanding worldwide through meaningful delegation visits to global communities, small grants for community development, support for women students and young professionals, collaboration with the U.S. Department of State to host the International Women of Courage Celebration, and the participation of local chapters which act locally and affect globally.
AWIU was honored by the U.S. Department of State as a recipient of the prestigious Gender Champion Award in 2022.
