Pocantico Center, Tarrytown, NY


Consortium Director Carol Cohn participated in the Ploughshares Fund's event "Women Talk Security, Nukes and Democracy" from May 24-25, 2017. The convening was part of Ploughshare Fund's Women's Initiative, "bringing together a network of women from both inside and outside the nuclear security field to build a new and inclusive national security and foreign policy platform. This platform will be rooted in a shared belief that security policies must be inclusive, incorporate perspectives not traditionally associated with national security, and recognize that individuals and local communities, not simply nation-states, are also key constituencies affected by these policies. Our goal is that all people in the network will learn from each other, and bring a common-sense security platform back into their work whether it be as an activist or in the policy community."
