wh group



The cities of Boston and Detroit hosted a group of fourteen individuals from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland for a ten-day study-visit. The participants included health, public policy, NGO, and counseling professionals. The program examined ways to promote women’s wellness and mobility in society, including encouraging continuing education, training for returning to the workforce, achieving work/life balance, financial management, domestic violence prevention, health maintenance and routine medical checkups. Consisting of academic seminars, lectures, and organizational visits, the program allowed participants to actively engage with each other and with their American counterparts. The meetings provided the group an opportunity to exchange best-practice strategies and to create professional networks with each other and with their U.S. hosts.
