    Where: The Brookings Institution, Falk Auditorium, 1775 Massachusetts Ave, NW, Washington, DC


    On November 8, the Center for Universal Education at Brookings (CUE) will host the 2017 Girls' Education Research and Policy Symposium: Reaching the Most Marginalized. Each year, CUE convenes policymakers, practitioners, and stakeholders in the girls’ education arena to discuss the most pressing issues as identified by the Echidna Global Scholars, a group of global leaders in girls’ education who spend 5 months in-residency at Brookings. The day will be marked by a series of thematic conversations that explore approaches to ensuring that the most marginalized girls receive a quality education.

    The panel discussions will include brief presentations from the Echidna Global Scholars’ research on girls’ education in their home countries of India, Kenya, Jamaica, and Mexico, followed by a moderated discussion with other experts in their thematic areas. Each session will end with a Q&A, leaving time for panelists to take questions from the audience.

    A light reception will follow the event..
