9 October 2018, Lisbon. WoMED is an innovative high-level training program on women empowerment and gender equality conducted by Sciences Po Paris from 2015-2017 with the support of the French Ministry of European and Foreign affairs, the French Ministry for Women Rights and the Interministerial delegation for the Mediterranean. The WoMED project was labelled by the UfM in 2015 and is part of the UfM Secretariat’s global strategy to promote concrete projects for women empowerment and gender equality in the Euro-Mediterranean region. For three successive years, 62 women aged 25 to 35 years old, coming from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Syria, Turkey or Tunisia, pursued an intensive training program on leadership and gender equality, with a twofold objective: how to disseminate gender equality principles in the Mediterranean region and how to be part of a lively leading women network.
For the first time Sciences Po will gather all the WoMED participants for an in person one-day event to share their field experiences, reflect upon the impact of the training and brainstorm on their role in building inclusive societies for the Mediterranean. It will be the occasion for them to consolidate their network and launch an internet platform.
