Capacity-building of the Georgian Leadership Community

NewsPosted by 2010-12-10 09:18AM

GenderFocus is collaborating during 2010-2012 with SIPU International and the Georgian Foundation for Strategic and International Studies on the project "Capacity-building of the Georgian Leadership Community for Improved Decision-making and Negotiation Skills" which is designed to assist the Georgian government to respond to the governance challenges. The project aims to engage directly with middle level public servants and civil-society representatives in practical exercises in policy development and negotiation techniques. As such, these exercises not only aim to modernize Georgian public administration and public policy, they seek to deliver actionable policy documents related to issues of national importance. Key to this project is the introduction and reinforcement of modern management knowledge, practice and skills among public officials. Their efforts will be consistent with and supportive of principles of gender equality.

GenderFocus contributes with gender expertise in the program. A successful training of 29 men and women civil servants was held in Tblisi on December 5-9th, 2010.
