Outreach is underway to draw a rich cross-section of people from around the world into the conversation - from academics to activists and researchers to policy-makers. In the lead-up to the gathering, the website will serve as a hub where people from around the world can connect and converse on issues related to globalization and women's equality, and more. To stoke that conversation, organizers will roll out a range of interactive components and unveil content and registration information as it becomes available. Site visitors are encouraged to sign up for e- bulletins to receive up-to-the-minute information about website content and the conference. This online portal is part of a broader new media strategy that organizers hope will attract unlikely participants to the conference and related discussions, a key conference objective being to encourage intergenerational exchange. WW 2011 organizers also plan on using social media like facebook, flickr, youtube, and twitter to stimulate connections and conversations. Ottawa-Gatineau plays host to this 11th edition of Women's Worlds - a triennial global women's conference most recently held in Madrid in 2008 and Seoul in 2005 - with the University of Ottawa and Carleton University partnering as lead coordinators.
