The Forum is thrilled to announce Latanya Mapp Frett as the plenary speaker for its 16th Annual Conference in Kansas City.
Latanya Mapp Frett is President and CEO of Global Fund for Women. Previously, she was the Executive Director of Planned Parenthood Global, the international arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, with regional and country offices in Africa and Latin America. She quadrupled the size of the program in four years to become one of the most innovative and sustainable global health organizations in the field.
