A Big Thanks to AWIU COIR Supporters

Many AWIU members have “risen” to support our Sixth Annual Career Opportunities in International Relations (COIR) Symposium on Thursday, October 6, 2022. “Women Rising: Navigating World Challenges” will be the topic of presentations, panels and discussion groups.

Thank you to everyone who rose to the challenge of producing AWIU’s 6th annual COIR Symposium 2022.
