Global Networks ForumKFLA is delighted to announce and invite Kellogg fellow women from around the world to attend the first Global Networks Forum on Advancing Women’s Leadership; which will take place in Miami, FL, November 17-19, 2015.

This event is being strategically designed by the prestigious Ashoka, Eisenhower, Kellogg, Harvard Loeb and German Marshall Memorial fellowships with the goal to spark a powerful women-for-women worldwide network. In attendance, there will be 200 alumnae from these fellowships who are in positions to help one another, and to help women in their communities at local, regional, national and global levels.

So far, we are pleased to announce that two exciting keynote speakers have been confirmed so far, one of whom is a Kellogg Fellow alumna:

  • Dr. Phumzile Mlambo-Ngucka: Under-Secretary General and Executive Director, U.N. Women; Former Deputy President, South Africa | Kellogg Fellow (KSAL)
  • Dr. Donna Shalala: President, Clinton Foundation, former U.S. Secretary, Health and Human Services

We believe this forum will provide a path-breaking opportunity for fellows to share leadership strategies and innovations across their networks, sectors and borders to solve many issues women face globally.

Registrations will open late July.
