BOSTON — On October 5-7, the Armenian International Women’s Association (AIWA) will hold its ninth international conference in Armenia. The conference will be titled “Local to Global: Uniting for Change.”
Over three full days, participants can meet and engage with inspiring female leaders from around the world, with talks in key field areas, including Fostering Mind, Body and Soul, Gaining Grounds in Technology, and Mobilizing the Power of Women in Business, Government, and Media.
AIWA organizers hope that the conference would serve an all-in-one resource for personal growth where attendees will hear inspiring talks, meet experts through networking opportunities, participate in skill-building workshops and walk away with a support network of Armenian women spanning the globe.
A welcome reception on Wednesday, October 4, and a gala dinner on Saturday, October 7, are included in the conference package, with additional add-on excursions before and after the conference.
Among the speakers will be Baroness Caroline Cox, an ardent advocate of human rights and a vocal ally of the cause of Armenians in Karabakh. Other speakers will include Tatevik Aghanbekian, director of sexual Assault Crisis Center NGO, songwriter Anush Alexanyan, UNESCO Finance Officer Arevik Anapiosyan and attorney and senior government advisor Sara Anjargolian.
