NOW: New Opportunities for Women
- Social inclusion
The NOW online platform provides learning materials for personal and professional development, and tips and advice on how migrant women can develop their professional and personal leadership skills. Our aim is to inspire them to achieve more.
The NOW project supports all women with a special focus on migrant women due to the additional challenges they face. Whether you are a leader, aspiring to be a leader, or just want to be in control of achieving your personal goals then this programme will help.
Resources and topics are:
- Personal development - improving yourself. Identify your own strengths, abilities, values, and perceptions of yourself. Topics: Strengthening Myself and Managing My Emotions
- Social Empowerment: recognise what you can do to support other women and to advance the empowerment of women in their own households, families, networks and communities. Topics: Influencing Others and Promoting Gender Equality
- Leadership Assets: identify the skills, attitudes, and assets you should develop if you want to take on a leadership role. These learning materials will inspire you to develop your leadership ‘toolkit’ so that you can reach new heights and achieve your personal and professional goals. Topics: Inspiring Others and Reaching Goals
- Inspiring Female Role Models – 16 videos profiling successful female leaders. Some are business leaders, some are activists, some are leading change in their local communities. Regardless of the different leadership roles they have, all the women on this page are inspiring.
- Mentoring – guidelines and documents we have prepared if you are interested in offering your time and experience as a mentor, but if you feel that you would need some additional support and training first, please visit the Train the Mentor section. Learning resources included: Mentoring Cycle and Train the Mentor programme
