Presented by the Wagner Women's Caucus Student Organization and co-sponsored by the Women of Color Policy Network.

This year’s signature fall event will facilitate a conversation about the importance of recognizing gender differences in the field of public service and the unique perspectives and experiences women leaders bring to the field of non-profit and government work. The event will take place at NYU Wagner’s Puck Building on Friday, December 10th, 2010, and will begin with a keynote address from Council Member Julissa Ferreras, Chair of the Women's Issues Committee.

There will then be a panel discussion moderated by Nicole Mason, Executive Director of NYU Wagner’s Women of Color Policy Network. The panel will feature: Saroya Friedman-Gonzalez, Vice President of Seedco, Beatrice Frey, Communications Officer for Production, Branding and Social Media, UNIFEM and Margaret DiZerega, Director of the Family Justice Program at the Vera Institute of Justice.

Each panelist will address the importance of focusing on women when discussing issues relevant to each of the speaker's field, as well as the unique perspective women bring to that field. After the panel, the WWC will host a small reception.
