[Brussels, 29 April 2014] The European Women’s Lobby is happy to announce today the release of the second part of the webdocumentary, showing the further course of the Mentoring Programme.
During the second part of the documentary you will see the Mentees and Mentors during the last two capacity buildings, in December 2013 in Strasbourg and in February this year in Brussels, as well as interviews with supporters of the EWL’s 50/50 campaign for parity democracy and the Mentoring Programme, like the European Commissioner for Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, Kristalina Georgieva, MEP and Chair of the Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality Mikael Gustafsson, or MEP Claude Moraes.
During the capacity building in Strasbourg we had furthermore the possibility to interview MEP Britta Thomsen, MEP Ulrike Lunacek and MEP Mojca Kleva Kekus together with their Mentees Kamilla Sultanova, Kolia Bénié and Sanchia Alasia, sharing their impressions about the mentorship.
You have furthermore the chance to get a little insight in the event “My MEP is just like me?!”, organised by the EWL in February, where not only the Mentees Sanchia Alasia (candidate for the European elections for the London Region), Güliz Tomruk(candidate for the European elections in the Netherlands) and Kamilla Sultanovahad the chance to present their views and ambitions in regards to the Europe Union, but also Congresswomen Linda T. Sánchez (Senior Whip for the Democratic Caucus, USA) who talked about her experience of being a female politician in the US. To read more about this event, please click here.
