Hillary Clinton will return to Washington, D.C., this Friday to speak at Georgetown University and give awards to four individuals who promoted Colombian peace efforts.

Her speech will focus “on the important role that women can play in international politics and peace building efforts,” according to a Georgetown press release.

The former secretary of State and Democratic presidential nominee is expected to make remarks at the annual Hillary Rodham Clinton Awards ceremony and honor four Colombians. Humberto De la Calle, Maria Paulina Riveros, Elena Ambrosi and Jineth Bedoya helped achieve a “historic peace agreement that ended over 50 years of conflict in Colombia,” according to the university.

“Secretary Clinton has been a strong advocate for the role of women in peace processes as an important means to end hostilities and achieve sustainable peace,” Georgetown said.

The Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security has a endowed the Hillary Rodham Clinton Fellowship Program, which provides annual fellowship awards to master’s graduates who plan to spend a year working at the institute. The institute describes its mission as examining and highlighting “the roles and experiences of women in peace and security efforts worldwide through cutting edge research, global convening and strategic partnerships.”
