Take part in NWCI’s Women for Change Project

Published: Friday, October 12, 2018

NWCI together with nine organisations were successful in receiving funding under Training Links. We plan to bring a diversity of women together who are currently involved or are interested in getting more involved in representation and participation in decision making in their local communities. The women will come together to access training, support each other in calling for women's equality and bring about change. 

We have formed a network to organise and deliver this project. The nine partner organisations are Community Work Ireland, National Collective of Community Based Womens Network, Duhallow Womens Forum and IRD Duhallow, National Traveller Womens Forum, Longford Womens Link, Women4Women & Southside Partnership, Cultur Migrant Project, West Clare Family Resource Centre and Carlow County Development Partnership. 

A series of workshops and sessions are planned and underway in the following areas;

  1. North Cork
  2. Limerick and Clare
  3. Midlands
  4. Dublin
  5. Mayo
  6. Carlow

Some of the areas we will be looking at include

  • Women and Leadership
  • Campaiging and Lobbying
  • Negotiating and influeing policy
  • Womens equality

There will be opportunties for you to tell us what you would be interested in and what would support your role.
