Women as Global Leaders: Educating the Next Generation
March 14-16, 2005
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Request for Program Submissions
Although communication, capitalism and other transnational processes are bringing corners of the world together in new and interesting ways, the global environment is also becoming an increasingly complex and diverse place as different cultures, religions and nations intermix. This student leadership conference will explore what leadership roles women have and will play in this global environment, as well as the specific challenges, benefits and needs of different local and global communities.
By focusing on women’s leadership education, the conference also addresses key questions concerning how to create and transmit engaged and dynamic pedagogies for educating women as global leaders. For instance, how do we teach leadership so women can bridge both local and global arenas? What new trends are emerging with regard to global leadership and women? Are there specific requirements and challenges for serving as global leaders or leading in international contexts? “Women as Global Leaders: Educating the Next Generation” will seek to answer these and other questions.
The conference format will include presentations by prominent world leaders and personalities, and opportunities for participants to interact with these leaders, as well as papers, presentations, simulations and workshops. While student participation is limited to female students, leadership practitioners and educators of both genders are invited. Parallel and interactive sessions are planned for all participants, and all sessions will be in English.
Several conference sub–themes have been identified, and submissions are encouraged to address any theme; submissions across themes are also welcome.
