The WES team is excited to start off the new year with a six-day Training of Trainers (TOT) in Tunisia. The goal of the training is to prepare WES trainers to offer cutting-edge curricula on leadership and social media to women entrepreneurs in their communities. The training also provides an opportunity for partners to deepen their bond as a network of like-minded organizations working for their own sustainability, while empowering women entrepreneurs in their communities.
The training will start with a three-day Innovative Leadership TOT led by Barbara Fittipaldi. Participants will gain skills to support women in their communities to develop as leaders, entrepreneurs, and mangers in a climate of rapid change. On day four, trainer Beth Kanter and co-trainer Stephanie Rudat will facilitate a workshop on Becoming a Networked NGO: Using Social Media Effectively which will expose participants to concepts around transparency, openness and what it means to be a networked NGO. Beth and Stephanie will then lead a two-day TOT on Social Media for Women Entrepreneurs where WES trainers will learn how to provide technical skills and best practices to support women entrepreneurs as they design and expand businesses.
