Brilliant & Resilient Photo Exhibit in Panama


A celebration of women leaders with disabilities, the photo exhibition will debut in Panama City, Panama.

The celebration of women leaders with disabilities and the international traveling exhibit featured portraits and vignettes of 30 women activists with disabilities from around the world.

The exhibition event promoted networking and partnerships between women leaders with disabilities, human rights, development, and government agencies. The event also included, as featured presenters, 25 women leaders with disabilities from throughout the country, who participated in the Women’s Institute on Leadership and Disability (WILD) – Panama.

The event was hosted by 2016 WILD alumna, Marissa Malena Martinez Samudio of Patronato Luz Del Ciego in partnership with the National Secretariat on Disability (SENADIS) and the National Institute of Women.

The Brilliant & Resilient Photo Exhibit was supported as part of WILD-Panama, and was made possible by the Australian Embassy’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Open Society Foundations, the Channel Foundation, and Mobility International USA (MIUSA).

We’d also like to gratefully acknowledge Palo Alto Software for sponsoring the Spanish translation of the exhibit.
