Mason’s Women’s Studies Research and Resource Center will host two Mason alumnae who are “making a difference” and “changing the world” on Wednesday, March 29, at 7 p.m. in Johnson Center Assembly Room F on the Fairfax Campus.

Alma Abdul Hadi Jadallah (MAIS ’96) is an organizational development consultant who focuses on the intersection between conflict resolution research and practice in communities and organizations. She sits on several boards dedicated to community work and peace-building efforts such as Partners for Peace. She has participated, designed and implemented efforts related to peace building on the Arab-Israeli conflict and is committed to the exploration and implementation of a non-violent solution to the conflict. Jadallah is also a doctoral candidate at Mason’s Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution.

Liliana Bachelder (BA Foreign Languages ’92; MA International Transactions ’95) works with the Foreign Agricultural Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. She is currently working on expanding the exports of U.S. commodities and U.S. food aid donations. She is also working on a project to bring micro-nutrients to African children and the HIV-infected population.

Both women will speak about their work and answer questions. For more information, contact the center at wmst@gmu.edu or 703-993-2896.
