PWESCR’s annual leadership development programme is uniquely designed for women’s rights leaders (men and women) working in organisations from the economic South in key leadership positions. Using a human rights framework and the ICESCR to address structural causes of poverty and inequality, the Institute will particularly focus on the social construct of gender and women’s poverty.

The facilitating team is composed of experienced trainers and prominent leaders who possess the necessary creative skills to foster an enjoyable learning process. The faculty for the Institute includes Priti Darooka, Maria Virginia Bras Gomes, Gagan Sethi and Jerald Joseph.

Phase 1:January 23rd to 29th, 2011 New Delhi, India
