VISIBLE. ENGAGED. AUTHENTIC.

Women candidates in local elections

The Academy for Women, with the support of the French Embassy in Bosnia and Herzegovina, is implementing a project for women candidates in the upcoming local elections under the slogan "Visible, Engaged and Authentic".

In order for the program to be tailored to your needs, we have created an online questionnaire with clearly conceptualized questions to help us extract topics that will be the subject of a one-day workshop. In addition to the online questionnaire, the Academy of Women also conducted several focus groups with women who work within political parties to find out in an open conversation whether women will even run in the next local elections, whether to leave the position on the list to party leadership or will fight for their positioning in accordance with their competencies and support in the base, both party and extracurricular, whether they have a vision of their campaign, what topics they will present to their community before the election, whether they use social networks sufficiently as a medium through which potential voters and voters can reach now.

On this basis, the Academy for Women created a one-day workshop program.
