This month SSGM commences a five year PNG Women in Leadership program.
Supported by the Pacific Women Shaping Pacific Development program, the goal of the program is to improve women’s political participation by enhancing their competitiveness in elections.
Drawing on the latest research concerning successful electoral campaigning in PNG, prospective women candidates will be provided with a program of staged electoral cycle support to help them develop effective and tailored campaign strategies that respond to the distinctive circumstances of their particular electorates.
In doing so, it is hoped that the program will help to improve the overall performance of women candidates in elections, and ultimately the level of women’s representation in parliament and sub- national legislatures.
To be eligible for the program you must be a woman intending to contest PNG’s 2017 national general elections, the 2018 LLG elections and/or the 2022 national general elections.
Applications should only be completed by intending candidates and not family members or campaign managers.
If you are selected to participate in this program, you must be able to commit to attending a three-day training workshop to be held in late January or early February 2017. You will be advised of the workshop dates and locations as soon as possible.
We anticipate that workshops will be held in Port Moresby, Kavieng, Tari, Mt Hagen, Goroka, Wewak, Madang and Buka, though workshop locations will be determined according to applicant demand.
