CFR Invitation for 11/30 Academic Conference Call: “Female Entrepreneurship in Afghanistan”

By vittorio | novembre 25, 2011

On behalf of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), I invite you and your students to participate in the next CFR Academic Conference Call on Wednesday, November 30, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. (ET). Gayle Tzemach Lemmon, CFR’s fellow and deputy director of the Women and Foreign Policy program, will discuss female entrepreneurship in Afghanistan.

Prior to joining CFR, Ms. Lemmon covered public policy and emerging markets for the global investment firm PIMCO, after working for nearly a decade as a journalist and producer with the ABC News political unit and “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.” Her first book, “The Dressmaker of Khair Khana,” a New York Times bestseller, tells the true story of a young Afghan entrepreneur whose business created jobs and hope for the women in her Kabul neighborhood during the Taliban years. Ms. Lemmon’s work on women entrepreneurs in conflict and postconflict regions has appeared in the “Financial Times,” “International Herald Tribune,” and “Christian Science Monitor,” as well as on multiple websites such as the “New York Times Global Edition,” CNN.com, “Daily Beast,” and “Huffington Post.”

I hope you will visit our “Educators” portal on the CFR website at www.cfr.org/educators, where you will find CFR and “Foreign Affairs” resources designed and packaged especially for the academic community, including modules with teaching notes, event announcements, and discounted “Foreign Affairs” subscriptions.
