2016 Honorary CommitteeChair
“ In these times of a shrinking world, AWIU offers its members the opportunity to meet and understand people of other cultures, women in particular. Through AWIU one can visit, gain knowledge and even assist women in other countries, thus contributing to world peace and understanding.
“ How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!
“ Today, women are naturally transitioning to taking on leadership roles. Since its incorporation in 1968, AWIU promotes learning and understanding via its delegations, grants, and volunteerism. AWIU is a grass roots organization that connects women, within the U.S. and around the globe, through goodwill.
“ No country can get ahead if it leaves half of its people behind. This is why the United States believes gender equality is critical to our shared goals of prosperity, stability, and peace, and why investing in women and girls worldwide is critical to U.S. foreign policy.
