UN Women Ethiopia’s Gender Equality and VAWE workshop

May 25 @ 9:00 am - May 27 @ 5:00 pm AEST

UN Women Ethiopia’s Gender Equality and VAWE workshop
UN Women Ethiopia’s Women in Leadership and Governance Program in partnership with the Ethiopian Human Rights Commission (EHRC), is planning to organize 3-days Gender Equality and VAWE BRIDGE workshop for key electoral stakeholders (including Security and Judicial institutions responsible for supporting elections, NEBE, EHRC, and CSOs).
The workshop will be held by BRIDGE accrediting level facilitators Natia Kashakashvili and Shalva Tskhakaia with the combined modality of the online & face-to-face training during 25-27 May, 2021 in Addis Ababa.
Violence against Women in Elections (VAWE) is among the key priority areas identified in the partnership with NEBE and EHRC. UN Women is supporting the two institutions to implement interventions to fill the gap in acting against VAWE identified from past elections, and existing challenges faced by women in politics in Ethiopia. Therefore, the workshop aims to provide the participants with tools and good practices to prevent VAWE and/or mitigate its consequences.
