Zainab Salbi, humanitarian, entrepreneur, author, and media commentator, will discuss "The Rights of Women in the Middle East: Challenges and Opportunities." At the age of 23, Zainab Salbi founded Women for Women International, a grassroots humanitarian and development organization dedicated to serving women survivors of wars by offering support, tools, and access to the life-changing skills necessary to move from crisis and poverty to stability and economic self-sufficiency. Under her leadership as the organization’s CEO (1993-2011), the organization grew from helping 30 women upon its inception to more than 478,000 marginalized women in 8 conflict areas. It also distributed more than $120 million in direct aid and microcredit loans that impacted more than 1.7 million family members.
