Uganda - Women Committee Chairs training programme

Published 01 June 2018

CPA UK and UN Women delivered a training programme in Kampala on 25 and 26 May, which aimed at enhancing the skills and capacity of women committee chairs and vice-chairs to communicate with the media. The strategic aim of the programme is to create a self-sustaining network of women parliamentarians with strong leadership skills which will lead to an increase and improvement of the representation of women in Uganda.

The programme, led by an international communication expert, Kate Faragher, and managed by a CPA UK staff, observed more than 35 participants, which included 17 women chairs and vice-chairs. The programme covered four core themes of media communication: delivering good speeches, preparing for interviews effectively, handling spot questions confidently, and making an impact during TV panel discussions.
