World Bank changing policies lecture, Nov. 15

The World Bank's senior spokesperson on gender issues will present a lecture titled "Changing Policies and Strategies at the World Bank: The Example of Gender and Development" on Thursday, Nov. 15.

Karen Mason, director of gender and development in the Poverty Reduction and Economic Management Network at the World Bank, will speak at 4:30 p.m. in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall.

Gender and development is one of the four areas of focus in the World Bank network. Staff working in this area carry out a range of activities in support of the bank's objective of mainstreaming gender in operational, research and policy work.

Mason has had a distinguished career in demography and sociology, including faculty positions at the University of Michigan, the University of Wisconsin and the University of Hawaii. Recognized as an expert in her field, Mason has conducted research on gender and development issues for many years. In 1997 she served as president of the Population Association of America, the main professional association for population specialists in North America.

The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs Office of External Affairs.
