Sharing stories is empowering! Learn from experts the power of storytelling, learn to tell your own stories in a unique workshop!
Storytelling is a powerful method to trigger change and is an effective way to (re)claim one’s voice, one’s sense of identity.
Gender bias is still deeply embedded in every facet of our society: socially, culturally, economically, politically and professionally. Women and girls face unacceptable levels of discrimination and abuse, even in developed countries. Empowerment enables women to play an inclusive role in society and reach their full potential.
Storytelling - whether humorous or serious reflections - inspires, forms connections and can lead to change. Stories about women empowerment revolve around insights on role models, self-esteem, courage, opportunities, ambitions, being authentic and so much more!
Learn from experts the power of storytelling, learn to tell your own stories in this unique workshop!
This is a special kick-off for the upcoming series ‘story telling for gender empowerment’.
The workshop will be followed by informal networking and drinks at Erasmus Paviljoen.
