This year, the CIB Working Group will organize a Webinar series. The first webinar will be entirely dedicated to the topic of “Women Leadership”. It will address questions such as: What are hurdles women face when coming, and staying, into office at the local level? And how to best cope with these challenges in your programme? This webinar will take place from on the 2nd of April, 15:00 - 16:30 CET.
During this webinar we will share some first-hand experiences from different contexts, as well as interesting insights on how to effectively deal with the challenges regarding working on gender equality in your projects and programmes. Three speakers will share their insights with the participants: the first speaker is Ms. Anastasiia Zablotska (Ukraine), who recently served as acting Mayor of the Ukrainian city of Irpin and is the sitting President of the City Council Women’s European Assembly. She will share her experiences with women empowerment within local governance, and discuss how to set-up inclusive local policies. Ms. Racheal Atukwase (Uganda) will share her experiences as gender expert in the 5-year IDEAL-programme of VNG International in Uganda, which is all about inclusive decision-making and citizen participation. The third expert Ms. Shannon Lövgren (Sweden), who is an experienced programme manager at the Swedish International Centre for Local Democracy (ICLD) and is involved in their leadership programme aimed at women politicians at the sub-national level in Zimbabwe. She will share experiences on how to address (and built capacity on) this topic of women leadership in international donor programmes.
