About the Event

 

 

 

 

Building Bridges is a full-day conference that provides the opportunity to learn from national experts, local leaders and community members about issues that arise in the gender and sexual-based violence field in Maine. In addition to a variety of sessions throughout the day, there will be an opportunity to learn from an inspiring and experienced keynote. As our communities have diversified, our approaches to providing services and solving community problems have necessarily changed.

 

Our Keynote Speaker:  Edna Adan is a prominent African figure known for her significant work in education and public health. Adan began her illustrious career as the first Somali woman to train as a nurse in the UK. She applied her skills and knowledge both in and out of Somalia as a Regional Nursing Advisor, Regional Technical Office, and more for the World Health Organization. Her work does not end there, as she went on to serve her country as Minister of Social Affairs and Family Welfare as well as Foreign Minister. Her service to her country didn't end there as she built a new hospital and university focused on public health and medicine in Somaliland. Adan's work has been recognized across the world, from an Honorary Doctoral Degree from Clark University in Massachusetts to the Chancellor’s Gold Medal from the University of Pretoria. We are proud and honored to have her be our keynote speaker.
