Are you a female policy maker, legislators, legislative drafter, criminal justice practitioner or law enforcement official from West and Central Africa?
Do you work on issues related to organized crime?
We invite you to submit your expression of interest for the first meeting of the UNODC Network of Women in Law and Policy against Organized Crime in West and Central Africa!
Join us on the 27 – 29 of November for an inspiring two and a half days to learn from your peers working in the field of organized crime and to build a strong network of female colleagues! The event will include panel discussions on organized crime related issues, workshops on soft skills and practical exercises to put all the information into practice!
As recognized in the UNODC Strategic Vision for Africa, “women are uniquely positioned to be agents of change, but their potential to help solve issues and innovate is not sufficiently utilized”. Women continue to be underrepresented in law and policy efforts to prevent and combat organized crime.
UNODC aims to address this problem by establishing a Network of Women in Law and Policy against Organized Crime in the region, recognizing that networks can be a powerful tool in advocating for and effecting change. The network will aim to equip members with the skills and contacts necessary to excel in their careers, ultimately strengthening female representation and making progress towards gender equity in governance.
Join us and be part of the change! Deadline to apply 1st of November.
