Pacific Young Women's Leadership Dialogue 2013
The Pacific Young Women’s Dialogue is one of the first projects of the newly established Pacific Young Women’s Leadership Alliance (PYWLA). It is envisaged that a regional forum will be organized as a lead up to the 12th Triennial Conference of Pacific Women in October 2013 to support the preparation and engagement of 20-35 young women leaders from the Pacific region. An Online Dialogue will be launched in early 2013 to invite nominated participants to engage in the Pacific Young Women’s Network in order to learn, share information, connect and further develop a regional advocacy agenda for the five key themes of the Pacific Young Women’s Leadership Strategy. In addition, the young women leaders will build the practical skills and networks necessary to lobby the delegates at the Triennial Conference on Pacific Women around the key themes of the Pacific Young Women’s Leadership Strategy:
Safe: Violence Against Women, Women, Peace and Security, Women’s role in Disaster Management
