Niagara Foundation organized a panel discussion “Celebrating Women as
Community Builders” in commemoration of Women’s History Month.
In this panel, our panelists shared their opinions with us on the role of the women as community
builders, discuss the contributions of the women to society in different fields and talk about the
challenges that they encounter. They also shared their views on how to make women realize their full
potential and encourage them to fulfill this potential.
