We are proud to welcome Julia Roig to Simmons for our sixth 2015/16 Friars Leaders Program speaker series, co-sponsored by the Warburg Program.

Julia Roig is President of Partners Global, a Washington-based non-governmental organization that works to resolve conflicts in fragile states by helping civic actors become leaders and peacebuilders. From modest beginnings in eastern Europe 25 years ago, Partners has grown into a network of 19 international affiliates linked by a unique philosophy and operational methodology. Julia’s leadership of Partners Global is an inspiring example of how intelligent civil society activism can help build a saner, safer world.
