Around The World
Shout Out to Hollaback!Bahamas! This awesome team partnered with Equality Bahamas for “Women’s Wednesdays” on the topic “Redefining Leadership.” A heartfelt thank you to guest moderator, Aneesah Abdullah from the Sustainable Development Goals Unit, Office of the Prime Minister. A series of concerns were answered and addressed during this event. They are as follows:
-What do we need from our current women leaders in order to create real change?
– How do we measure women’s leadership value? How do we refrain from essentializing women as leaders?
– What kind of leadership do we want to see among leaders in various sectors? How can feminist leadership be manifested in those sectors
– How do we address power in the context of women’s leadership?
For those who’ve missed out, we have your back! Feel free to check out the discussion by clicking this link: https://www.facebook.com/equality242/videos/226744165784474/
