A conference on Women and Leadership in November 2012 looked at our potential as leaders and widened the network of women working to influence decisions made on a local and county level.
In February 2013 a Women's Manifesto Group (later renamed Women's Voice Group) was established in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown. The women involved in this group want to bring women's perspective to local decision-makers. It is not' limited' to women's issues. The group might also bring issues affecting the community to decision-makers and feed back outcomes to the community. Every woman can contribute to a Women's Voice Group! The more women involved, the broader the range of perspectives informing the issues and decisions within the group.
If you are intersted in local issues get involved!
The Women's Manifesto Model was developed by Longford Women's Link. With the funding from the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, the model can be adapted in other communities across Ireland. The DLR Women's Voice Group is supported by Longford Women's Link.
2018 Programme (Spring)
We are planning a Women and Leadership Programme starting after Easter 2018. The 5 -6 weeks course 'Introduction into Women, Power and Leadership' will give you more insight into different cultural understanding of leadership and leadership roles and will allow you to transfer those into the Irish context.
After this basic workshop participants have the opportunity to continue with the following leadership programme: Women's Voice Group and Integration Guides/Facilitators.
If you are interested in exploring women's leadership role please contact Alison on 01 442 1004 or 087 148 2172 (Mo - Wed).
