Support to women leaders in Eastern and Southern Africa

A think tank meeting is to be convened by Hivos, Gender Links (GL) and Akina Mama wa Afrika (AMwA) from 7-10 December 2009 on lessons learned in Eastern and Southern Africa on supporting women leaders to get into decision-making; use these spaces to make a difference; and harness the energy after they leave.

The think tank meeting comes about as a result of mistakes and successes that point to the need for more targeted and strategic interventions; as well as greater coordination between the different groups involved. The IT revolution also opens many new opportunities for networking, skills development and leveraging of the work being done in many different corners. Among the outputs of the think tank meeting will be a collaborative strategy paper developed by the partners through online discussions before the meeting as well as the several group and panel discussions during the meeting, that will bring together key activists, women decision-makers ( in and out of political spaces), as well as international co-operating partners.
