Women & Gender in International Development Discussion Series
Join us for the next Women and Gender in International Development Discussion Series Event:
Gender, Labor and Livelihood: Invasive Pest Management in a Rural Ethiopian Community
Daniel Sumner, WGD Assistant Director, Office of International Research, Education, and Development (OIRED)
The Women and Gender in International Development program sponsors a discussion series giving students and professionals an opportunity to share their research and discuss issues of Women and Gender in International Development. Prominent scholars from inside and outside the university speak on topics including agriculture, economics, education, water and sanitation, and health, with a focus on how these intersect with gender issues. In addition to their presentations, outside speakers connect with the greater Virginia Tech community through meetings with students and faculty, guest lecturing, and other activities.
