Women in Power: An Evening with Professor Shirley Randell
To achieve equitable representation of women in politics, it takes more than simply "adding women and stirring."  Professor Shirley Randell will discuss the experience of women in Rwanda, who have built and maintained a majority in Parliament through at least two elections, and have made Rwanda a world leader in gender equality.  The event is co-sponsored by Seattle International Foundation.

As a leading expert in public sector and institutional reform in developing countries, and in gender mainstreaming and human rights for women, Professor Shirley Randell has provided specialist technical assistance to governments in the Asia Pacific Region and in Africa. She has worked long-term in Australia, Bangladesh, the Fiji Islands, Papua New Guinea, Rwanda, Solomon Islands, Sri Lanka, Vanuatu, the United Kingdom, and on short assignments in Afghanistan, Burundi, Canada, China, Ethiopia, Gambia, Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, Niue, the Philippines, Samoa, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, Tanzania, Thailand, Tonga, the United States, Uganda and Zimbabwe. Her eighteen years of international service have shaped Prof. Randell's work and speeches on global issues.  

Prof. Randell played key roles in discussions for the development of Rwanda's first Economic Development and Poverty Reduction Strategy and education and gender policies. A world vice-president of the International Federation of University Women from 2007-2010, she is a founder and Board member of the biggest association for women graduates in Africa, the Rwanda Association of University Women (RAUW), and was Founder/Director of the Centre for Gender, Culture and Development at the University of Rwanda's College of Education. RAUW has over 900 women members and about 350 financial members.

Professor Randell was named one of 100 Australian Women of Influence in 2012, and one of 100 World of Difference Awardees in 2013 by the International Alliance of Women.  Her visit to Seattle is co-sponsored by the University of Washington, Dept. of Gender, Women and Sexuality Studies.  

The evening will include a networking reception with light appetizers and a no-host bar, and a brief presentation with Q&A by Professor Randell.
