Women Leaders Part 1

Posted by mbcstaff

March 8th was International Women's Day. Using that day as inspiration, all month long we've featured women leaders in the field of conflict resolution, learned from their wisdom and experience and listened to their stories. Part 1 is the first half of our Women Leaders in March.
