Women, girls talk about international experiences

By
From page A4 | March 06, 2013 |

Five speakers will discuss how international experiences influence one’s world view at a free program celebrating International Women’s Day on Sunday afternoon at International House Davis. The event runs from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at 10 College Park.

Speakers are:

* Ewen Wang, a Stanford physician who has recently worked in Borneo with the organization Health in Harmony;

* Ana Sofia and Lucia Amieva-Wang, two young sisters whose summer experience abroad had a far-reaching impact;

* Vijji De Datta, who has moved through several cultures from classical dance and movie stardom in India to her current position teaching accounting at Woodland Community College; and

* Nicola Hil, a California state employee whose career choice was strongly influenced by a year’s study abroad.

These women will discuss how international experiences have influenced their outlook on roles and involvement in global issues as well as their observations regarding empowerment of individuals who were previously uninvolved in positive change, a news release said. They also will touch on opportunities that may not have been available to them at earlier times.

“You are invited to come and hear what are certain to be interesting and inspiring presentations with personal perspectives and insights into how society has changed, can change or needs to change,” a news release said.

The program is co-sponsored by the United Nations Association, Davis Chapter; International House, Davis; League of Women of Davis; and American Association of University Women, Davis.

Refreshments will be served. For more information, contact Verena Borton at 530-756-0632 or rvborton@comcast.net.
