Washington Global Health Alliance, PATH, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Open Arms will lead a frank discussion on how the ability to control family size and experience safe childbirth enables women to dream, create, and work together to improve their own lives and that of their families and communities.

Empowering women starts with better health care. The ability to control family size and experience safe childbirth can enable women to dream, create, and work together to improve their own lives and that of their families and communities. Learn how Seattle organizations are working at home and abroad to improve women's lives.

This frank and fascinating conversation will be led by an expert panel including:

  • Lisa Cohen, Executive Director, Washington Global Health Alliance (moderator)
  • Shelia Capestany, Executive Director, Open Arms Perinatal Services
  • Vivien Tsu, Associate Director for Reproductive Health, PATH; Affiliate Professor of Epidemiology, University of Washington

Following the discussion of how empowering women both at home and abroad is making a difference, take the opportunity to network and view Empowering Women: Artisan Cooperatives that Transform Communities before it closes on October 27.

This lecture is part of the Empowering Women through Art and Action series taking place this fall at the Burke Museum.
