Join us for a two day workshop on global development and changing gender roles. Learn how to: incorporate these topics into your existing curricula; become familiar with international and local issues as they relate to human rights, economic and policy development, gender and sexuality, and explore the role of international organizations (UN Division for the Advancement of Women (DAW), World Bank, International Labour Organization) in addressing these issues; develop student-led research projects to bring back to the classroom, and network with colleagues. Community college faculty from all disciplines, especially including STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), are encouraged to apply. University of Washington and community college faculty, staff, local practitioners, and graduate students will lead this two day workshop.

We expect lively discussions and informative lectures. Community college participants will be paid a stipend if they are selected to participate and attend all two days of the workshop.  This workshop does not include clock hours. Depending on funding, limited travel stipends may be available for those coming from east of the Cascades or outside of Washington State.

Applications are due on or before May 27, 2014. Applicants will be notified by June 9, 2014 if they have been accepted into the program. Sponsored by the National Resource Centers of the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, University of Washington, the Northwest International Education Association, and funded by the United States Department of Education.
