Integrative Peacebuilding: Norm Transformation - Women’s Access to Senior Management Positions (Online Session)
The Integrative Peace Building (IPB) courses are grounded in leading edge concepts of human dynamics, complex processes, and relationship-building to bring about sustainable problem resolution in conflicted settings. It is understood that the premises of IPB can only succeed if all interacting parties have the capacity to exchange with each other on an equal, professional, and meaningful basis.
Notwithstanding the culture in place, the leaders and facilitators of these interactions must insist on the inclusion, integration, and empowerment of women to deliver the agreed-upon outcomes. However silos are a challenge to this corporate goal. As such, leaders must become norm entrepreneurs. Contexts always matter and gender issues cover a wide range of challenges. Therefore, tools of leadership and partnership will be presented to create new opportunities.
The course will deal with concerns and issues raised by participants – a key component of the collaborative nature of this course. Teams will collectively develop strategies, concepts, and practical suggestions for those with a mandate (formal or informal) to deal with women’s inclusion and empowerment issues in the workplace.
