Workshop Literacy of Women for Leadership

Date: May 9-10, 2006
Location: Zagreb, Croatia


General objectives of the Program Literacy Women Leadership are:

-To construct modules Literacy of Women for Leadership adapted to local and national realities;
-To realize processes of action research in interaction with transnational partner- organisations, groups and networks of women.

The workshop will be “composed” with the experiences and knowledge of the participants. Narrative knowledge will be valued as a basic component in the process of constructing new theory.

The workshop starts from the experiences of the participants with power and leadership, in the institutions where they are working as well as in life in general.

Leadership will be analysed in the perspectives of power with, and power in order to. Power with is power that promotes the participation of all. Power in order to is power that contributes to the increase of the quality of life and the satisfaction of basic needs of people: clients of services, target groups in projects, populations that are influenced by social, economical and cultural policies.

Basic needs are taken into consideration. Both material (food, health, clothing, shelter, environment, consumption) as well as non-material needs (education, communication, culture, science).

The concept and practises of power over will be questioned: does this type of leadership mean that it leaves little or no responsibility to people, while reducing them to tasks of executing the decisions of others?

Sharing of experience, critical reflection, deepening of theoretical insights as well as planning of action will be part of the process. Narrative knowledge will be valued as a basic component in the process of constructing knowledge.

Participants in this Workshop are Members of the network of the Centre for Women’s Studies, Zagreb.
