PNDC For Women's Organizations and Leadership Trainers

Training Context & Overview

Women's empowerment is a core issue in virtually all women’s organizations, whether they focus exclusively on various aspects of women’s leadership or provide needed services for specific populations, such as those with health issues or those who have been victims of domestic violence. Because empowerment is, likewise, an issue for women in any work environment, many women's leadership programs are geared to corporate and other professional environments, as well as community settings. While great strides have been made in recent decades toward achieving greater equality, the “glass ceilings,” stereotyping, and abuse still exist in epidemic proportions. What is needed now is for women to assert their needs, rights, and leadership with a voice of wisdom that can reach the mainstream of women, men, and children. More . . .

"Your presentation was wonderful!  It touched a nerve for everyone.  Your presentation was well received by the more knowledgeable group members, and by those who usually criticize and challenge speakers.  It was one of the best presentations in the five years the Forum of Executive Women has been in existence."
