IRRI celebrates International Women’s Day 2014

The International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) joins the world in celebrating International Women’s Day, with Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago as special guest, on 11 March 2014, Tuesday.

Senator Defensor-Santiago has been named among the “100 Most Powerful Women in the World” (the Australian Women’s Magazine, 1997). Her flamboyant personality and strong opinions have often captured the imagination of national and international media.

Meet the esteemed lawmaker and participate in the discussion as she delivers her message on the IWD 2014 global theme, “Inspiring change.”

Join us in the two-day (10-11 March) special seminars at the D.L. Umali Building, IRRI.  All staff are encouraged to wear purple to show support to women.

We look forward to seeing everyone.
