A Note to Our Donors

Thank you to our donors – past, present and future – for your support. Over the past five years, you have helped us build the evidence based case for women’s participation in peace and security efforts. We have conducted research studies in over 17 countries. We have hosted close to a hundred convenings, with global leaders ranging from Queen Rania to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. And we have awarded prestigious research fellowships and opportunities for growth to countless students on campus. We look forward to our continued partnership.
