CEW+ Advocacy: Catalysts for Change

Join CEW+ for an inspirational evening featuring a student fellowship poster session, lightning lectures from faculty recipients of the inaugural CEW+Inspire Award, and the keynote Christobel Kotelawela Weerasinghe lecture by international and award-winning activist, Wai Wai Nu, who is working for human rights and women's equality for the Rohingya people in her home country of Myanmar.

The Christobel Kotelawela Weerasinghe Fund was created by former CEW+ Leadership Council Member Emerita Menakka Bailey in honor of her late mother, a lifelong advocate of cross-cultural dialogue and advancement for women.

The evening’s festivities also mark the launch of the new CEW+Inspire initiative, a multifaceted project that will highlight the research of U-M faculty and students engaged in diverse scholarship and support students to build resiliency as they continue along their own nontraditional paths.

5:30 pm - Student Fellowship Poster Session (Lobby)
6:00 pm - Event begins
