Jordan: UN Women supports women’s leadership in Jordan’s trade unions

Added on:  24-Mar-2015


From 22 to 24 March 2015, the UN Women Jordan ‘Spring Forward for Women’ team organized a workshop for selected members of the Jordan’s General Federation Union, targeting members of the union’s women’s committee with concrete support on skills building and gender mainstreaming.

The training sought to empower female members of the union vis à vis the upcoming round of union= general elections, which will take place in October 2015 to promote women’s decision making. Participants were trained on leadership, communication and negotiation skills, establishing positive linkages in a peer-to-peer learning session.

This support is part of a more comprehensive programme of support to women’s leadership in trade unions in Jordan funded by the European Commission.
