OSU-Women in Development

We are a community of Ohio State University faculty, staff, undergraduate and graduate students, and Columbus residents interested in cutting-edge research, policy making, peace and security, and activism on gender issues in social and economic development and globalization. We have been providing a service to the Ohio State community since 1985. Our primary activity is an annual speaker series.

As a member of the international organization,the Association for Women's Rights in Development, we serve as a resource for information on timely gender issues in development, organizing, jobs, internships, grants, publications, conferences, and other events.

Rapid global transformations affect people’s lives both politically and economically. OSU-WID provides a forum for discussing women’s contributions as agents of change and the situations in which women, their families and communities find themselves as a result of broader change processes.

OSU-WID sponsors events, often with other organizations, such as luncheon seminars, brown-bag discussions, films, workshops, get-togethers, and public events that highlight issues of women in development and gender differences.
