June 2021, Geneva, Switzerland - Empowering women to participate fully in economic life across all sectors and throughout all levels of economic activity is not only essential to establish more stable and just societies and to improve the quality of life for women, men, families, and communities but increasing gender equality is equally crucial to building strong, sustainable economies. Therefore, focusing on women empowerment and gender equality has a massive multiplier effect, including promoting peace and security, providing equal opportunities in society and the labour market, and achieving sustainable development.

Empowerment means that people – both women and men – can take control over their lives: set their own agendas, gain skills (or have their own skills and knowledge recognized), increase self-confidence, solve problems, and develop self-reliance. Based on this definition, UNITAR has designed an innovative three-day online training that puts special emphasis on the dimension of personal growth and exchange to develop solutions that reflect women’s diverse lives, needs and aspirations in private as well as professional life.

Learning Objectives

The objective of this specific training suite is to help female leaders to strengthen their resilience, manage uncertainty and to lead differently. Participants will learn how to use the power of positive psychology to change perspectives and behaviours, while managing their own motivational mechanisms.

By the end of this e-workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Gain personal and professional insight and confidence in their own leadership role – about their strengths, challenges and opportunities as a female leader and how they can shape their role and expand their impact;
  • Understand the importance of cultural factors for successful leadership and how gender plays a part, and acquire in-depth knowledge that will help them to navigate successfully in culturally diverse and international settings;
  • Acquire a deep understanding about the nature, power of and diversity in motivation and how this is impacted by gender;
  • Be able to execute the 3 C’s of Leadership in order to optimise their unique leadership style as a female leader.
