NCLW training workshop on Social Media for women advocacy

22-08-2013

The National Commission for Lebanese Women (NCLW) organised, in collaboration with the Ministry of Social Affairs (MOSA), a training workshop targeting organisations working on women’s issues and focusing on how to use Social Media to gain public support for advocacy on women equality.  The event was organised at the NCLW training premises in Baabda and extended over August 13 and 14 with the participation of some 40 NGO representatives.  Participants were introduced to social media tools such as Twitter and Facebook and how to use these to raise support around issues related to the rights of women.
The training workshop was implemented within the framework of the project aiming to strengthen women’s participation in local governance and funded by the Italian Embassy, and as per the Memorandum of Understanding concluded between NCLW and MOSA, and as part of the national campaign to support women in decision and peace making which was launched by first lady Wafa Suleiman on International Women’s Day in 2012.
