Screening: Every Girl is Important

Every Girl is Important is an initiative led by Diane Rodriguez, Ph.D., associate professor of Curriculum and Teaching. In response to worldwide inequality in education access for girls, she and her team created the project to build a boarding high school for girls in Western Kenya. This event will discuss that initiative as well as cover topics such as

  • empowering girls through education,
  • education as a way to break cycles of poverty, and
  • the importance of educational equality for nation-building and economic development.

The event, hosted by Fordham GSE, will be accepting donations to support Every Girl is Important program development.
