Training Manual: Solomon Islands Women Candidates Training Workshop 2010
Having identified a need for the training and development of future women leaders in the Solomon Islands, the Centre for Democratic Institutions (CDI) conducted a Women Candidates Training Workshop in Honiara from 8-12 March 2010. CDI’s partners in delivering the workshop were the Solomon Islands National Council of Women (NCW), through their Women in Shared Decision-Making (WISDM) program, the Solomon Islands Ministry of Women, Youth and Children Affairs, and the Solomon Islands Parliament. The workshop was designed for participants intending to stand as candidates, or who planned to be on a candidate’s campaign team. The aim of the workshop was to equip women candidates and their teams with practical and strategic information and skills that will help enable them to realise their potential and effectively coordinate their resources to be the best candidates they could be as they contested the 2010 poll.
