WE WIL: Women Empowering Women Into Leadership is a capacity building leadership and empowerment program, designed for women who face barriers to employment and education.
WE WIL is a program that allows participants, not only gain new skills and qualifications, but to be in a supportive environment where the skills and knowledge that they already possess are honoured.
The training includes sessions such as anti-oppression and inclusion, advocacy, asset mapping, goal setting, interpersonal communication and soft skills training.
