Intersectional Feminist Workshops

Across history, truly transformative change towards gender equality has always been achieved by challenging and disrupting how power works in our societies.  

The most effective feminist movements have always understood this, using intersectional feminist principles to deconstruct power and reveal how all systems that further inequality are interconnected. 

Building on the success of our intersectional feminist toolkits, IWDA is now offering a series of tailored, guided workshops to organisations and individuals looking to do just that. 

More than your standard training, our workshops are designed to open up spaces of sharing and collaboration. They will help you tap into the existing knowledge and expertise held within your teams while deepening your sense of connection and collective purpose.

Based on core intersectional feminist principles, each course is designed to support you and your team in strengthening different aspects of your organisation or advocacy work. Rather than a one-size-fits all solution, our workshops will provide you with the tools you need to work towards your organisational goals – no matter the context. 

Workshops and Courses for Individuals

Designed for individuals working in the not-for profit sector who are new to advocacy, or wish to learn how a feminist approach can strengthen their advocacy work. Both offerings provide participants with useful strategic planning tools that can be implemented in your own organisation’s advocacy planning. 

Master Advocacy Fundamentals At Your Own Pace

An online course for individuals who prefer self-directed learning. Ideal for advocates and campaigners who are looking for a more sophisticated structure to their advocacy planning and want to deepen their understanding of women’s rights approaches.
