9/4 Event – UW Myanmar Fellows Looking Forward: Information Strategies for a Society in Transition

This summer TASCHA, along with the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, hosted 25 of Myanmar’s leaders from government, civil society, political parties, ethnic communities, libraries, and the media. The fellows took part in a 5-week professional development program focused on information strategies for societies in transition. During the 5 weeks, they developed information strategies for Myanmar that will strengthen peace building, fair elections, and information literacy.

These distinguished individuals and the UW-Myanmar project team invite you to join them for a lunch reception where you can learn about their proposed projects and the plans for a Myanmar Information Laboratory. There will be a brief welcome at noon, followed by time for guests to visit the project teams and learn about each project. At 1:30pm, we will formally present the fellows with certificates acknowledging their accomplishments during the 5-week workshop.

UW Myanmar Fellows Looking Forward is co-hosted by the UW’s Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies and Information School’s Technology & Social Change Group.
