February 22, 2024 (MLN): United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in collaboration with the National Rural Support Programme (NRSP) and the All-Pakistan Women Universities Consortium (APWUC), will be organizing ‘International Conference on Breaking Barriers through Diversity and Inclusivity’.

The conference will be held on 26-29 February 2024 to strengthen partnerships between U.S. Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) and eighteen Women Universities from all across Pakistan.

It is an important milestone towards fostering close collaboration between our two countries and especially towards empowering our women, said Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States.

Ambassador Masood Khan made these remarks during his meeting today with a delegation of USAID led by Zeinah Salahi, Senior Deputy Assistant Administrator.

It was informed that the international conference seeks to stimulate cooperative endeavors among female professionals, scholars, scientists, and community advocates to promote gender-inclusive approaches for climate resilience, sustainable water management, and the incorporation of localized wisdom into practical strategies.

“Greater collaboration between MSIs and Women Universities of Pakistan would enable our women to play a catalytic role in some key areas including climate change, the introduction of smart-technology solutions, enhancement of agricultural productivity, localization, private sector engagement and entrepreneurship,” he said.

“Educational collaboration has always remained a key plank of Pakistan-US relations and such initiative, especially catering to women would further cement bonds, facilitating them to play a greater role in the nation-building process,” added the Ambassador.

He assured full support and facilitation from the Embassy of Pakistan for the success of the conference and also towards fostering close collaboration among the academic institutions of the two countries in the future.
