Speaker Information

Karen Sherman has spent her life advocating for women in war-torn and transitional countries such as Congo, Nigeria, Rwanda and South Sudan. Throughout her 30-year career in global development, Sherman has met and interviewed thousands of women. Their remarkable stories of strength, courage, resilience and resourcefulness fuel what she believes to be true: championing women’s education and economic participation has the power to transform the lives of women and the future of families, communities, societies, and, ultimately, the world.
