How does Women Forward International select its university and artist partners? 


Our university partners each have faculty dedicated to serving humanity through research. We look for artists who dare to break the boundaries of social norms – in order to break free of outmoded and limited mindsets.


When we bring together service-oriented educators with bold moves of artistic freedom we find that we inspire change – changes in consciousness which lead to changes in behavior and society.


As art is relevant to every international relations issue and its forms such as film, music, poetry, and dance hold the power to awaken the heart towards empathy for one’s fellow being, the next generation of leaders is exposed to new templates for human relations and encouraged to act on them.


Each of our university research projects is followed by an implementation phase in collaboration with the client organizations. Implementation of the most beneficial recommendations is ensured by the support of Women Forward International's philanthropic partners.
