Training: Women’s Leadership: Public Service and Global Health
Women’s Leadership: Public Service and Global Health is organized by Smith College and co-sponsored by Smith College and the U.S. State Department as part of the Women in Public Service Project (WPSP).
This intensive, four-day interactive workshop reflects the overall goal of WPSP: to increase the participation and efficacy of women in all spheres of public service.
Primarily targeted at early- and mid-career women drawn from Francophone Africa, or women in France and greater Europe working on issues relevant to Francophone diaspora communities, this conference will combine presentations, small group workshops, and informal discussions centered on the broad topic of public service leadership on issues of public health.
This training will:
Provide women leaders with enhanced skills for attaining elected and appointed positions in the public sector;
Enable participants to establish a professional network within and outside of their home countries;
Supply participants with concrete tools and training to increase the scope, efficacy and visibility of their ongoing work;
Communicate strategies, tools and materials to participants that they can deploy upon their return to their home countries for the training of other women in public service.
