Event Details

Jewish World Watch has the distinct honor of presenting the JWW I Witness Award to Melanne Verveer, Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues, in recognition of her incredible work in her State Department position and as Co-Founder, Chair and Co-CEO of  Vital Voices Global Partnership. Ambassador Verveer has sustained an exemplary career illuminating not only the injustices faced by women and girls in conflict zones, but also their perseverance, courage and strength.

The venue for the evening will be the Skirball’s Women Hold Up Half the Sky exhibit, a perfect complement to Ambassador Verveer’s vocation.  Inspired by the bestselling book by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, the new exhibition addresses the worldwide oppression of women and girls as the most urgent human rights cause of our time.
