As we reported last week, Yashaswini Singh ’13 spoke Monday at a conference hosted by the Women in Public Service Project (WPSP) and the U.N. General Assembly.

Singh spoke about the importance of equal access to economic resources for women around the world and was one of eight students from women’s colleges across the country to speak on the panel, which was held at Barnard College.

Video of the event, photos, and more, can be found on Barnard’s website.

WSPS is a joint initiative of the U.S. State Dept., the five leading women’s colleges (Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, Smith, and Wellesley), and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and is intended to bring more talented women into leadership roles in politics, government, and intergovernmental organizations.
