Courageous Leadership: Our Efforts to Educate Women & Girls in Afghanistan 

This event celebrates truly courageous Afghan social entrepreneurs leaders. They are refugees from their homes, relentlessly working to bring Afghan women and girls education and hope. We will be joined by speakers Pashtana Zlamia Khan Durrani, Founder of LEARN Afghanistan, and Roya Mahboob, Founder & CEO of Digital Citizen Fund. These amazing women will be discussing their leadership journeys and their experiences creating organizations that directly address literacy for women in Afghanistan and beyond. Attendees will hear about action items they can take within their own communities and how they can contribute to improved literacy worldwide. In 2012, Pashtana was featured in the #100Timestalks and was among the BBC 100 Most Influential Women list in 2021. In 2013, Roya was recognized for her work in TIME Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World and is a member of the 2014 Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards, Civic Innovators, and Young Leader of World Economic Form. The School of Business and the Katie Leadership Impact Program could not be more excited to host these amazing speakers and help bring their stories to the Katie Community and beyond. 

This event is free, however, seats are reserved and advance booking is required through the O'Shaughnessy.
