Smart Centre launches in Tripoli the second phase of its leadership programme


Smart Centre for media and advocacy launched last week the second phase of its “She Leads” programme which targets women from various parts of Lebanon and seeks to train them to become decision makers as well as more effective at the political, social and economic levels. The workshop series started in the North with the participation of 70 women drawn amongst civil society activists, housewives as well as representatives of Smart partners.
The Smart Centre director, Randa Yassir, spoke in her intervention about the stereotypical image of women leaders in the media.  She noted that the purpose of the programme is to encourage women to reflect images as leaders as well as empower them with communication and negotiation skills in addition to develop their political, economic and social skills.
The director of training and research at Smart centre, Dr. Mamoun Torbey shared the results of a study conducted by Smart centre which indicates that the media does not reflect the true image of pioneer and political Lebanese women.  This was followed by interventions from partner organizations praising the importance of the programme and hoping for a continuous collaboration with Smart in the framework of future projects.
