When women move forward the world moves with them. This was the key message at the Global Women in Management Program held in Port Moresby recently.
Run by Plan International USA, the three week workshop aims to strengthen women’s management, leadership and technical skills to advance economic opportunities and build the next generation of women working in civil society or for non-profits in PNG.
Designed for women working in local non-government organisations, cooperatives, and business women’s associations, the Centre for Development and Population Activities (CEDPA) Global Women in Management (GWIM) program empowers women by advancing economic activities.
Supported by ExxonMobil’s Women’s Economic Opportunity initiative, the Centre for Development and Population Activities (CEDPA) Global Women in Management (GWIM) program was, for the first time in its 36 year history, held in PNG, bringing together 26 women from across the country.
The CEDPA GWIM program launched a global effort in 2005 to help women in more than 90 countries fulfil their economic potential and drive economic and social change within their communities.
To date, ExxonMobil has invested more than $70 million around the world to help implement programs that have directly benefitted tens of thousands of women globally.
Since 2006, Exxon Mobil has provided support for 23 Papua New Guinean women to complete the GWIM program, bringing the total to 49 women this year.
