The Women in Public Service Project is pleased to co-sponsor this event with Brazil's Chief Justice Carmen Lucia, part of an ongoing lecture series on Rule of Law in Brazil from the Wilson Center Brazil Institute and the Washington College of Law at American University.

This paper seeks to understand the impact women’s political networks have globally in supporting women overcome the universal cultural and structural barriers they face in engaging in a political career.

Please join the Women in Public Service Project and publication author Lucina Di Meco for the launch of this unique resource for emerging women leaders and global stakeholders. The first in a multi-city series of launches, the event will include a conversation with women leaders leveraging networks and technology to make a difference at all levels of decision-making around the world. The discussion will highlight the ways in which political networks can help women leaders break barriers and drive change toward global gender parity.

It is no question that reaching gender parity in decision-making positions remains a challenge across the globe. By using the data to examine the full landscape of leadership and compare representation within sectors, we develop a more comprehensive understanding of both the barriers and opportunities for leadership each sector presents.

In driving the 2016 Colombian peace deal, the 2017 Hillary R. Clinton Awardees are not only achieving long-awaited peace in their country; but are also closing the gap in women’s leadership in global peace and security.

The Women in Public Service Project and Women@TheTable are pleased to present this report from the conference Breakthrough Barriers: Women in the Public Sphere, which convened women leaders from 24 countries to discuss challenges and opportunities for women's leadership globally and develop concrete solutions to address barriers to leadership.
