Training Opportunity for Women Interested in Political Leadership

Flyer…………………………………………………………………………..

Output 2.4 of the Strengthening Women’s Representation in National Leadership Project

A cadre of 75 National Women Leaders Are Trained and Prepared for Electoral Politics

The preparedness of women to participate in political processes on par with men is a fundamental indicator of MDG3. Women’s participation requires them to be educated and trained for electoral politics in order to reach a critical mass of candidates contesting local and national elections. This action will identify and train 75 national women leaders including from indigenous communities who previously participated in training programs such as the Women in Politics and the Transformational Leadership Training by Caribbean Institute for Women in Leadership (CIWIL) to prepare for and contest local and national elections. The project activities will include higher level training in practical implementation of campaign management, messaging, public presentations, policy development, and gender-budgeting. These potential female political candidates will receive trainings in topics such as: How the political system works, Advancing within the Parties, Strategic Positioning, Dealing with political rallies, Dealing with the Media, Literacy Classes, Assertive training. The project will also mobilize trainees and women in civil society organizations in six (6) districts to participate in community outreach activities and public forums to build on public presentation skills and gain first-hand exposure to public speaking.
