The “Unbounded Women” program in Bahrain Women Association for Human Development (BWA) organized series of workshops introducing participants’ (mothers and caregivers) to the leadership concepts, as part of its project started in April 2012 to empower mothers and caregivers. The workshops were conducted in November at BWA premises.
The leadership workshops aims to tackle issues related to women’s empowerment and communication strategies; enabling participants to determine best means of communication and listening to build a shared understanding and come to agreement; enhance women’s participation and leadership in various spheres of social interaction and decision-making.
The workshop discussed topics related to women and leadership in an age of information revolution, and focused on women because they constitute a majority of the world’s population, and they have been largely excluded from the processes that have shaped our lives in the past, and they must play a far more significant role in these processes in the future if we are to create a better world for ourselves and for our children.
It is worth mentioning that the mothers and caregivers empowerment project aims through these series of workshops to empower mothers and caregivers to understand the concepts and issues related to the “social role” and “social upbringing”, and to build their leadership capacity that contributes in improving their community role.
