Speaker Series - An Intimate Evening with Nobel Peace Laureate Jody Williams

Jody Williams returns to Vancouver on March 19. Hosted by the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education, she will talk about how she and her colleagues around the world worked together to ban landmines, work recognized with the Nobel Peace Prize, and her tireless efforts to promote human rights through the work of the Nobel Women’s Initiative. Her talk will be followed by a Q and A.

In 1997, Jody Williams became the tenth woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. She was the founding coordinator of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) and oversaw ICBL’s growth to more than 1,300 organizations in 95 countries working to eliminate antipersonnel landmines.  In 2004 she was named by Forbes as one of the 100 most powerful women in the world. Since her protests of the Vietnam War, she has been a life-long advocate of human rights.
