The Asian University for Women: Supporting a Gender Agenda

Click here to register

The Asian University for Women (AUW) was established in 2008 in Chittagong, Bangladesh, to provide women drawn from diverse social, economic and language backgrounds with opportunities to become critical thinkers and ethical leaders in their home communities.  The AUW already has a significant record of achievement, but it needs help and support, particularly in the aftermath of COVID-19.

Our speakers are: Professor Nirmala Rao OBE FAcSS, Vice Chancellor of AUW and a former Council member of the RSAA; Lady Judy Moody-Stuart, Vice-Chair of the AUW Support Foundation in the UK and a long-standing RSAA member; Cherie Blair QC Chancellor of AUW, a leading human-rights lawyer and wife of former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair; HE Shiv Shankar Mukherjee, Trustee of AUW, former Indian High Commissioner to the UK and South Africa and Ambassador to Nepal and Egypt; and Eshra Hassan, a graduate of AUW in Politics, Philosophy and Economics, currently studying for a Masters in International Security at the University of Sussex.
