GSC to air live video of DC State Department event

On Thursday, December 15 a delegation of Smith students, faculty, staff, and alumnae will be joining Secretary Hillary Clinton, Gloria Steinem ’56, and other policy makers, public officials, academics experts, and innovative thinkers at the kickoff event for the Women in Public Service Project at the State Department in Washington, DC.

The Women in Public Service Project is being led by the State Department in conjunction with five leading women’s colleges—Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, Smith, and Wellesley—with the hope of advancing women’s leadership in politics and governance worldwide.  The Smith College Global Studies Center invites members of the Smith community to a special Smith Tea to witness the exciting event via live video stream from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the center.

The event in Washington will kick off a series of global conversations and partnerships at each college. The project aims to meet the following objectives:

  • To challenge the world community to identify, create, and advance a new generation of women committed to public service
  • To bring together thought leaders, educators, and public servants from around the world, as well as members of the private and non-profit sectors, who wish to take up this challenge
  • To identify and address the obstacles that prevent more women from committing to a life of public service and political leadership
  • To explore creative solutions that will increase the number of young women who aspire and are empowered to pursue a career in public service
  • To make recommendations for implementing those solutions at all levels of political involvement around the world
