The Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M will host “The 3rd Annual Texas Symposium on Women, Peace, and Security: Challenges and Opportunities Amidst Global Change,” Monday, Nov. 20, 2017, in the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library Orientation Theater from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Panelists will analyze and discuss solutions to the issues most pressing in women’s security today, including women and peacebuilding in Afghanistan, women’s health as a national security issue, and current scholarly research on the relationship between the security of women and the security of the states in which they live.

Keynote speakers include:

  • U.S. Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX);
  • Ambassador Catherine Russell, former Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues, U.S. State Department
  • Bush School professor Valerie Hudson

Women’s perspectives and voice on issues of national security has been sorely lacking, and this symposium is a contribution to the rectification of that deficiency. The Texas Symposium on WPS also aspires to showcase Texas-based scholarship, philanthropy, programming, and policy on these important issues, with a panel of representatives from home-grown organizations.

The symposium is free but seating is limited. Visit the Bush School website for additional event and registration information:
