September 15 at 1 pm Kiev and Kenyan time (12.00 – Poland; 3.30 pm- India) Media IC (Poland), ICA Ukraine and IAF Africa invite you to the weekly online dialogue about the role of women in community development, and the impact on the positive changes in the world.
The topic: Power of Empowered Women
We will talk about the influence of women in power in the community development and the positive impact of women’s leadership in peace-building and security.
«Over the last twenty years, the international community has increasingly operationalized its commitment to ensuring that women are full partners in peace-making, peace-keeping, peace-building and development. Globally, positive strides have been made to understand the distinct contribution men and women can make in these domains, including the landmark work resulting from the Beijing Platform for Action and UN Security Council resolution 1325, as well as supporting resolutions on women, peace and security. However, progress lags behind in several areas, not least in consistently ensuring women’s full and equal access to decision-making and resources to exercise their rights in situations of conflicts, instability and transition processes. Yet, we know that when men and women participate in conflict management and peace-building on an equal footing, the result is more cohesive and resilient communities and societies that can maximize their sustainable development potential». 23 June 2015.
