The Africa Liberal Network (ALN) is excited to announce the launch of its new Women’s Leadership Programme, in partnership with the UK Liberal Democrats and the Multi-Party Office at Westminster Foundation for Democracy.
The programme, open to women politicians from all ALN member parties, will provide participants with additional knowledge, skills and tailored support to advance as candidates and into leadership roles.
Applications for the 2019 programme are now open and we warmly invite aspiring women leaders from across the Africa Liberal Network to apply.
Designed for candidates intending to run for local or general elections in 2019, 2020 or 2021, will include three two-day training workshops over 9 months.
The programme will also include a mentoring scheme whereby participants will be paired with an experienced political actor to provide tailored advice and support. The training will cover a range of topics, from campaigning and voter contact models to social media, fundraising and much more, helping equip participants with the tools they need to successfully contest party nominations and elected positions.
