NCCWN Limerick Women’s Network seeks Women for Change

The NCCWN Limerick Women’s Network are running a free four-week programme, Women for Change in partnership with the National Women’s Council of Ireland. They aim at bringing a diversity of women who are currently involved or are interested in getting more involved in representation and participation in their local communities together, in accessing training, peer support and advocate for women’s equality and social change.  The programme will run across four Tuesday mornings from 10 am – 1 pm, starting on April 30th in the Moyross Community Enterprise Centre.

Newly appointed Coordinator of NCCWN Limerick Women’s Network, Edel Geraghty, said, “We are delighted to be working with the National Women’s Council of Ireland on this national programme.  We have designed this programme specifically for the women of Limerick. Based on feedback from women, we will focus on women’s representation on the local council and other structures as well as how to develop and run campaigns.  This course is particularly of interest to those representing an issue or their community already, as well as those who want to become more involved.”

Women for Change training and workshops will take place Tuesday, April 30th, May 7th, May 14th & May 21st, 10 am – 1 pm , Moyross Community Enterprise Centre.
