Leading Thoughts: Laurie Adams, Women for Women International

This summer the Hilton Prize Coalition is resurfacing the Leading Thoughts series, which reflects upon the work being conducted by Coalition members to build resilience in communities across the world. This clip from 2018 features Laurie Adams, Chief Executive Officer of Women for Women International.

In the clip, Laurie describes her team’s approach in tough situations. She touches on Women for Women International’s ability to be locally embedded and working within the culture while still pushing the boundaries a bit to expand women’s rights in a way that’s safe for the women.
