Women's Education Worldwide (WEW) was hosting its first student Leadership Conference after many years of planning which was attended by 70 women from 17 countries and five continents. The conference's mission was to facilitate international and cross-cultural understanding between young female students from different educational institutes across the globe. The students participated in leadership and skill-building workshops, presentations on giveback projects, communal dinners, interactive sessions and entertainment programmes. They were also taken on a trip to Smith College and met College President Carol Christ, visited downtown Northampton, and enjoyed a bonfire. The conference gave the students an opportunity to share different emotions with people from varying backgrounds and respect each other's values and culture. The participants compared the educational opportunities, status and literacy rates of women in their respective countries. They also exchanged views about economic resources, political power, gender equality, history and the gradual reshaping of the culture in their countries. The workshop management engaged the participants in various topics of discussion such as women in science and technology, environmental issues, student government, ethics, the history of women's colleges, and spiritual peace and faith.
