Get to know FLOW
July 20, 2015
IWDA’s Funding Leadership and Opportunities for Women program aims to increase women’s representation in civil and political leadership across the Pacific in order to drive gender equality. In partnership with a number of local civil society organisations, the FLOW program continues to enable the sharing of strategies, experiences and knowledge to advance women’s leadership. Program initiatives are designed to build the confidence of individual women to participate in decision-making processes and assume positions of leadership, while building the capacities of program partners to strategise and strengthen their organisations.
To date, the FLOW program has supported partner organisations across Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and Fiji, promoting concrete results including the distribution of 7600 voter guides to Fijian women and the election of the first woman in history to win an election in Bougainville’s parliament.
