The Value of Service: Women as Leaders Abroad is a joint effort between the Peace Corps – Midwest and The Wright Museum to celebrate Women’s History Month by recognizing the accomplishments and perseverance of women who uplift their communities despite the circumstances in which they are placed, as well as to inspire the exploration of other cultures through a life changing, service-based experience through the Peace Corps. A panelist of local women who are Returned Peace Corps Volunteers will speak about their perspective and how they balanced their own values with their communities specifically around gender issues for these issues are difficult challenges for Peace Corps volunteers to navigate as well. The panelist will highlight women who took on leadership positions in their communities or who made an impact on their service. The program will conclude with a Q & A portion giving attendees the opportunity further explore topics which were discussed.
