Join us on Wednesday, January 23, 2013
08:00 – 10:00 EST Live (time subject to change)
in an e-learning session
Presented by the editor of the publication, Srilatha Batliwala long time grassroots activist, renowned gender equality advocate, and women’s studies teacher and researcher in India and internationally.
The first in a series of sessions, based on Changing Their World 2nd edition, designed with the following objectives:
- Familiarize participants with the basic definitions and concepts of social movements, women’s movements, and the relationship of movements and organizations; and
- Enable participants to apply the concepts to analyze their own / their organization’s work in the context of movement-building approaches, in order to strengthen them
The focus of the session is to clarify and strengthen their understanding of what distinguishes movement-building approaches from the short-term projects, policy-advocacy, campaigns and other types of activities that are often conflated with movements. We believe the sessions will benefit almost anyone active in building women’s collective power, but unclear about what a movement is or how to build one, because of the widespread NGO-ization and “projectization” that has affected women’s rights organizations and gender equality work worldwide.
The sessions will follow an interactive format, with some “homework” as pre-preparation, and use a conference/e-learning technology. A short presentation, followed by Q&A and debate, will be used.
Please join us and interact with activists and organizations from around the world, and learn concepts and ideas to strengthen movements!
This e-learning session is based on the just published Changing Their World 2nd edition, updated with four new case studies, a new Introduction and Lessons Learned. To order a free hard copy in English please contact us at email@example.com
Language: The session will be run in English only.
