Lori DiPrete Brown among Brava’s 30 Women 2 Watch

Lori DiPrete Brown, the Global Health Institute associate director for education and engagement, is among Brava magazine’s 30 Women to Watch (page 54). “This year Brava celebrates 30 inspiring women who will make a positive impact upon the lives of others and our community in 2015,” the magazine reports.

The magazine especially recognizes DiPrete Brown’s work with 4W: For Women and Well-being in Wisconsin and the World, a new initiative pioneered by GHI, the School of Human Ecology and the Department of Women and Gender Studies. Her story: “Improving the Lives of Women Improve the World for All.”

The magazine also featured The School of Human Ecology’s 100 Points of Light (page 80), the glass wall that reflects women’s contributions to the school.

When the Capital Times asked Dean Soyeon Shim her bright idea for 2015, she imagained “a world where all women were granted universal human rights and had an opportunity to pursue financial success and leadership.” 4W is dedicated to jumpstarting a transformation to improve well-being of women and girls.
