Young Emerging Russian Leaders Exchange

In September of 2003 the National Peace Foundation and the Kensington-Rockville branch of the American Association of University Women (AAUW) sponsored an exchange visit to Washington, DC, of several young emerging women leaders from Russia. This Open World / AAUW Russian Emerging Leaders visit included a luncheon and reception at Montgomery College in Rockville, MD, a performance of Kate's Women: Back to the Future show at the Charles Gilchrist Diversity Center in Wheaton, MD, as well as a speaking engagement by Laura Liswood, Secretary General of Women World Leaders, that Kate hosted in her own home in Silver Spring, MD.
