AWA Women's Forum Lunch and Learn

The AWA Women's Forum "Lunch and Learn" program is a series of short monthly discussions on a variety of topics focused on women: their lives, their choices, their impact, and their concerns. 

The format is a brief presentation followed by a question and answer period. 

The presentations are held at the AWA office over the lunch hour, so attendees are welcome to bring a sack lunch if that is most convenient.  

Following initial one-off registration for this group, please register for the below activities by going to the appropriate date on the Calendar.

Wednesday March 20   Matt Friedman: Ending Modern Slavery
 
There are more slaves today than at any other time in history. That shocking fact, presented by Matt Friedman of The Mekong Club, summarizes the statistics: 45.8 million people in 167 countries are exploited every day for their labor, especially in South-East Asia.  These people make the recognized name-brand products we buy and they harvest or process the food we eat.  The Mekong Club is a leader in engaging and inspiring the private sector to lead the fight against the epidemic of modern slavery.
