Women in Rural Communities - NWCI’s Members and Friends meeting

The National Women’s Council of Ireland invites you to attend a members and friends meeting to discuss women in rural communities on Tuesday 10th April from 10:30am to 3pm in Longford Women’s Link.

On the day, speakers will provide an outline of developments in rural development across the country relevant to community organisations and opportunities for – and barriers to – women’s participation and full equality in rural communities. We will hear examples of successful engagement by women’s organisations and how we can work together to make women central to all areas of rural development.  NWCI will also give an update from our participation at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. The theme for 2018 is challenges and opportunities in achieving gender equality and the empowerment of rural women and girls.

Speakers will include:

Ellen O Malley Dunlop, Chairperson, National Women’s Council of Ireland
Tara Farrell, Deputy CEO, Longford Womens Link
Ann Irwin, National Coordinator, Community Work Ireland
Louise Lennon, Policy and Communications Officer, Irish Rural Link
