Join Interfaith Worker Justice and the Institute for Women’s Policy Research for a day-long exploration of strategies to strengthen women’s leadership in our movement.
Together, We Can Change the World:
Strengthening Women’s Leadership in Organizing
Women can and should enjoy a full voice in the leadership, policy goals and strategic priorities of our organizations! This interactive workshop will provide tools to advance women’s power and contributions to social justice organizing. Participants will explore the following topics:
- What challenges do women face in taking on full participation in activism and leadership? What strategies might address them?
- What values do women from different backgrounds bring to social justice, and how might those values inform the strategies and goals of movements for change? How can we use them to shape the work of our own organizations?
- What kinds of collaborations among women activists, within and across different organizations, can help us generate support for one another?
Presenters include Kim Bobo, Director of Interfaith Worker Justice, Dr. Amy Caiazza, Program Director at the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, and Rev. Trina Zelle, Presbyterian Minister and Lead Organizer of IWJ of Arizona.
