Call for facilitators for young women’s engagement workshop

[Brussels, 26 June 2019] We are looking for facilitators to prepare and facilitate a workshop on EWL’s engagement with young women, taking place from 8 to 11 November 2019 in Brussels.

Over the last four years, EWL has been hosting a yearly summer school for young women, the AGORA, gathering feminists aged 18 to 30 from across Europe to discuss and explore feminism together and learn from each other. After four editions of the AGORA and as EWL enters a new phase of its European-wide strategy, this year EWL will be hosting a four-day workshop to reflect on EWL’s young women’s engagement strategy. The timing for the workshop aligns with the review of EWL’s 2016-2010 Strategic Framework which we are currently carrying out, as well as the planning for our next Strategy post 2020.

The objective of the workshops is to review EWL’s engagement with young women so far and put forward suggestions for the ways in which the EWL can collectively and strategically work with and for young women, now and in the future. The workshop aims to be a space for thinking and devising ideas for EWL’s young women’s engagement strategy to support EWL’s mission of representing the diversity of the women’s movement across Europe.

We are now looking for a team of facilitators to prepare and facilitate the EWL workshop.
