74

Application Deadline: WEDNESDAY, 20 FEBRUARY 2019

Women Deliver is excited to launch the Advocacy Academy: three, brand new advocacy skill-building opportunities exclusively for Women Deliver 2019 Conference registrants!

Led by some of the world’s leading advocates for gender equality and
girls’ and women’s health and rights, these sessions will help emerging
advocates sharpen skills, build connections with allies and peers, and
practice proven methods for policy change. They’ll also equip advocates
with tools and techniques to leverage the Women Deliver 2019 Conference
to build and grow partnerships, and advance strategic advocacy
initiatives.

1) Introduction to Advocacy: An online course you
can take at your own pace, open to all conference registrants. The
course will introduce you to key advocacy terms, tools, and techniques
to set the ground work for building effective, targeted, and impactful
advocacy strategies. Conference registration required to participate.* Coming early 2019!

2) Interactive Webinars: Live, intimate, and
interactive online learning opportunities where advocates can hear
perspectives and learn best practices from colleagues leading advocacy
initiatives around the world. Participation in webinars will be capped
to ensure dialogue and shared learning opportunities. Webinars will be
conducted in English, French, and Spanish. Conference registration required to participate.* Coming March 2019!

3) In-person Skills-Building Workshop at the Women Deliver 2019 Conference: Two day, in-person workshop from June 2-3 in Vancouver, just ahead of the Women Deliver 2019 Conference. Advocates will practice techniques and tactics to advance their advocacy initiatives and refine a personalized advocacy strategy in a series of hands-on, interactive lessons and activities.

Participants will be selected through an application process. The in-person workshop will be conducted in English with select French and Spanish translation. Conference registration required to participate.* APPLICATION OPEN NOW!
