A training workshop was held last week in the southern Syrian city of Suwayda by Tulip Center for Women and Children Support and supervised by Leaders’ Center for Administrative and Political Empowerment at Fraternity Foundation of Human Rights (Birati).
Training was provided to a group of administrators and women leaders of civil society organizations and political parties in Suwayda.
The workshop which began on Friday, February 24, 2017 revolved around the leadership in general and the woman leadership in particular. It included the concept of leadership, its patterns and methods as well as the difference between management and leadership.
Additionally, the workshop focused on women’s leadership and the most important qualities of the she-leader through the presentation of the experiences of women leaders around the world.
Then, other lectures were given on the challenges and opportunities facing the leading women in the societies of the region.
The attendees were enabled with mechanisms of effective communication as one of the basic skills of leadership.
The workshop lasted for six days and involved about seventeen activities by several civic organizations and political parties.
It is worth mentioning that Peace She-Leaders project was launched in the cities of Hasaka and Qamishli, involving nearly fifty civic organizations and political parties from different religious, national and political affiliations of the components of the region.
Leaders’ Center for Administrative and Political Empowerment at Fraternity Foundation of Human Rights (Birati) aspires to implement a series of workshops all over Syria in order to break the monopoly of male leadership positions in the civic and political organizations in the country. The center aims at providing the Syrian women with the components of success and experience to exercise their rights to establish civil peace values in the country depending on the decision 1325 of the UN Security Council, which provides for the importance of the participation of women effectively on an equal basis as an element of sustainable peace.
