IWDA’S Intersectional Feminist Workshops

Together, we can build our movements’ capacity to create long-lasting, transformational change.

Building on the success of our feminist toolkits, IWDA is now offering a series of tailored, guided workshops to organisations and individuals looking to implement or deepen their engagement with feminist practice.

In the rapidly changing context of new global challenges, closing civil society space and increasing backlash against women’s rights and feminist agendas, ensuring our movements are strong, resilient and able to withstand these setbacks is more important than ever.

Our suite of workshops were created to help you achieve just that. Built around core intersectional feminist principles, each course is designed to support you and your team in strengthening different aspects of your organisation or advocacy work. From leadership and resource mobiliisation to feminist advocacy and creating cultures of care, our workshops will guide you through the process of implementing these practices into your day-to-day work and broader strategic plan to help further your advocacy goals.

More than a 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.
