Journeys – Intersections and Reflections: Nicaragua
Nestled between Honduras and Costa Rica in Central America, Nicaragua is a country with rich bio-diversity, history, and contemporary cultures. The course will take an experiential approach to exploring women’s leadership as it manifests similarly and differently in Nicaraguan and US contexts. From the first day of class, course participants will engage with organizations (non-profit/education, business, and political) led by women in Nicaragua. Students will initiate collaborative partnership that will culminate with a trip to Managua and Granada and continue post-departure. Throughout the course, students will challenge themselves to interrogate myths and biases about travelling abroad, learn about Nicaraguan culture, and self-reflect on their own experiences as emerging global women leaders.
