Roundtable Discussion on Southern Africa

  • Odegaard Library, Room 220 Seattle (map)

Meet student leaders from Angola, Botswana, Mozambique, South Africa, and Zimbabwe!

Engage in conversations to learn about their successes, hopes, and challenges as they create initiatives to improve their home communities, and share your own experiences and ideas.

We want to invite you to meet young undergraduate leaders on study tour from Southern African nations in conversation later this January. In roundtable fashion, we'll address topics such as gender, human rights, public health, and youth empowerment. At the roundtable, you'll get to learn from and build knowledge with young people who are looking to get involved in civic leadership in their own communities. 

If you're looking for a way to bring a little light into your blustery January, come join us in welcoming these rays of hope to Seattle with positive, thought-provoking conversation over refreshments. You're welcome to come by after work at 5:30, or arrive later. We also welcome and encourage you to forward this email to others who study, have worked in, or are passionate about positive change in the Southern African nations listed in the poster below. Be sure to RSVP Here.
