The next lectures from the Albuquerque International Association!
3 May 2014
On April 16, 2014 from 5:30 ? 8:00 p.m. join Dr. Susan Tiano for Borderline Slavery: Mexico, the United States, and the Human Trade. Each year, thousands of people are trafficked within and across our borders to serve as sex slaves or un-free labor in U.S. homes, fields, and factories. Many enter via our southern border with Mexico, after having been trafficked within or across Mexico from other parts of the Americas and beyond. Despite evidence that this trend is accelerating, it often goes undetected because human trafficking is so antithetical to our cultural values and collective image of what we stand for as U.S. Americans. But understand it we must, because human trafficking is flourishing in the globalization era.
This is part of the dinner lecture series and will serve New Mexican Cuisine.
On May 2, 2014 from 3:00 ? 5:00 p.m. join, Dr. Martha Burk for Paths to Leadership in the 21st Century. Dr. Burk will give the final talk of the series, synthesizing themes from previous speakers as well as her own experience conducting training workshops for NGOs, the U.S. Department of State, UNESCO, and universities around the world. The talk will explore the progress of women in the U.S. as compared to other countries, and factors that have allowed women in other parts of the world to reach a critical mass in leadership where American women have not.
