Please read: Important information for guests attending public events at USIP.

This event is co-hosted with the U.S. Department of State; the U.S. Department of Defense; the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the U.S. Civil Society Working Group on Women, Peace, and Security (CSWG).

An expert panel of representatives from key government agencies and civil society organizations will report on the progress of implementing President Barack Obama's executive order creating a United States National Action Plan on Women, Peace, and Security (U.S. NAP). The U.S. NAP recognizes that effective security strategies engage women as equal partners in conflict prevention and peacebuilding, and ensures their lives are protected, their experiences considered, and their voices heard. In this way, conflict can be more effectively avoided and peace better forged. To advance these goals, the U.S. NAP requires provisions for women's participation in peace processes and decision-making, protection from violence, conflict prevention, and access to relief and recovery.

Directly following the panel, a knowledge and resource fair will highlight over 20 civil society organizations working on the Women, Peace, and Security agenda. A reception to follow.
