IEEW's 2012 Peace Through Business® Program Culminates With A Dynamic Women's Economic Summit

WASHINGTON, July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- This year's graduating class from the non-profit Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women (IEEW) will be taking part in its annual leadership development training, mentorship program, International Women's Economic Summit, and graduation gala.  The theme of this year's Summit is "Beyond 2020/nVISION Success," and the two-day event will feature major international and corporate leaders. It will be held from July 23-24 and will be hosted by the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) in Washington, D.C.  

Six-year-old Oklahoma City-based IEEW provides training every year to 60 women in Afghanistan and Rwanda, to help them grow their own businesses. This is the PEACE THROUGH BUSINESS® program. As part of this training, half of the students are selected to travel to the United States for higher-level business and leadership training that culminates with the Summit and graduation. The International Women's Economic Summit provides a rare chance for the press to interview these women and dignitaries from Afghanistan and Rwanda.

"We have a wonderful lineup of speakers and guests at this year's Summit who embody IEEW's mission of empowering women economically, socially, and politically," says Dr. Terry Neese, founder/CEO of IEEW.

Speakers and moderators at the Summit include: Dr. Kathleen Kuehnast, director of the Gender & Peace Building Center at USIP; Dr. Kevin Fegan, president of Northwood University-Cedar Hill Campus; Susan Wilson Solovic, author and president/CEO of It'sYourBiz.com; The Honorable Eklil Hakimi, Afghan ambassador; and The Honorable James Kimonyo, Rwandan ambassador.
