The Real-World Solutions to Real-World Problems collaborative is an interdisciplinary team of faculty, staff, and students that provides opportunities for the Walden community of scholar-practitioners and change agents to share insights and expertise about current social problems.
Our sessions, which range from peer-reviewed virtual conferences and workshops to expert panel webinars, aim to educate, inform, and challenge others to improve the circumstances around each critical topic we address.
The Real-World Solutions to Real-World Problems collaborative is supported by Walden’s academic leadership, the Center for Social Change, and the Center for Faculty Excellence.
Walden University’s Center for Social Change, Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and Office of Academic Affairs presented the Real-World Solutions to Real-World Problems: Expanding the Women-in-Leadership Advantage Conference which recognized the leadership roles that women play in our global society. Through oral presentations, digital posters, artist presentations, and a virtual art gallery, attendees engaged with Walden speakers and artists, as well as other participants, in a dialogue on cross-disciplinary solutions that addressed gender inequities for women in leadership.
