Training Workshops and Conferences
The core mission of the WDN is to connect women leaders and aspiring leaders with their counterparts around the world to share best practices and learn new skills. To increase the capacity of our network members to achieve their goals, WDN conducts targeted skills-building trainings. WDN trainings are member-driven. Each training is designed specifically to meet the needs of its members, taking into consideration the political framework in each country, the culture and also the capacity of our members.
WDN’s trainings reflect a natural progression of three steps:
1. Educating women on the importance of political participation which in turn creates a
motivation to pursue elected office;
2. Supporting women seeking elected office by increasing their capacity to run
campaigns which reflect the concerns of voters; and
3. Ensuring women elected to office have the skills they need to govern effectively and
transparently; thus increasing positive public perception of women in office.
