Understanding that there are overlapping and interconnected threats to human security can help us create a roadmap for diminishing human suffering in the future. The first and most obvious hurdle is that the power structures and decision-making processes and leaders that are currently in place are not adequately addressing either climate change or women’s rights.
Women’s Learning Partnership is deeply saddened by the loss of our friend, colleague, and mentor, Asma Khader. As a founding member of WLP, Asma’s wisdom, creativity, and kindness have shaped the work of the Partnership for over two decades. Her commitment to participatory leadership, shared decision-making, and life-long learning served as a guiding light for the global women’s movement. Asma believed in the leadership capacity of every woman, and was dedicated to cultivating leadership in others.
