Free training on preventing online violence against women for EU elections candidates

The European Women’s Lobby offers women in politics training on online violence against women in view of the upcoming EU elections. Book your spot on 13 or 16 February!

In light of the upcoming European elections, we are pleased to invite you to a one-day training session in Brussels. The purpose of this training is to enhance awareness surrounding online violence against women, with the goal of empowering female politicians and candidates participating in the upcoming European elections.

Under the auspices of our initiative, the #HerNetHerRight for the EU (HNHR4EU), our objective is to equip participants with essential information and tools to recognize, prevent, and address various forms of online violence against women. Through the implementation of European-level training courses dedicated to the prevention and response to digital violence against women, female candidates and their teams will strengthen their social media and online presence, thereby augmenting their visibility. In the long term, the project seeks to bolster women’s participation in politics by empowering them to navigate social media as candidates and politicians, thereby increasing the likelihood of women being (re-)elected.

The training is taking place in Brussels on 13 February and 16 February (9h00-18h00). Should you express interest in one of these two days, please write to zaboia@womenlobby.org.

The European Women’s Lobby has been conducting these training sessions since 2019, with a foundation in the HerNetHerRights report.

We are looking forward to guiding you through this critical topic and we hope to welcome a substantial turnout. The imperative for a better Europe for women underscores the significance of training the next generation of politicians on these nuanced matters.
