"It was one of the most valuable, enriching, affirming and comprehensive training programmes I have ever attended. I gained so much from every session; from the trainers, the other course participants and the thinking it prompted in between sessions."

What's it about?

This programme provides women with theoretical and practical skills in feminist leadership that they will be able to apply in their lives, inside their organisations and in their communities.

Who's it for?

The 4-day Feminist Leadership Training Programme is for any women who want to grow their leadership skills and abilities to lead social change in solidarity with other women. 

You do not need any background knowledge to attend this training. While it is designed primarily for those new to leadership and emerging rather than established leaders, we invite and encourage all women to apply; no matter your background and experience.
