The Women’s Resource and Development Agency (WRDA), a charity which works to advance women’s equality, is offering free leadership workshops across Belfast as part of its summer programme.
Women who come along will have a chance to get their voices heard regarding their experiences and needs in post-conflict Northern Ireland. They will be able to share their views, discuss barriers that can prevent women from influencing policy and help develop strategies to create future change.
The workshops will begin with registration at 9.30am and will include refreshments and lunch. Limited childcare is also available.
Dates and venues are as follows:
South Belfast, Thursday, August 14, Windsor Women’s Centre
North Belfast, Thursday, August 21, Play Resource Centre
East Belfast, Thursday, August, 28, Greenway Women’s Centre
WRDA’s Training and Development Worker Isobel Loughran said, ‘’WRDA understands the importance of working within communities. We want to ensure local women are provided with space to voice their needs and that what they say is listened to by decision makers. Any woman interested in attending one of the workshops is welcome to come along and contribute.’’
The workshop series will be followed by a final event in September for all participants, during which recommendations will be presented to key decision makers. WRDA will also use these recommendations to shape its future work.
Women who’d like to take part should contact Communications and Membership Worker Robyn Scott on 028 9023 0212 or firstname.lastname@example.org. All workshops are funded by a Good Relations Grant from Belfast City Council.
