Killing 2 Birds Using 1 Stone, Developing the Leadership Capacity of Women
Women’s rights advocacy groups should continue to engage in increasing the awareness of both women and men concerning the existing gender inequality and things to be done to bridge the gap.
However, the existing advocacy works aren’t adequate. The advocacy works shouldn’t be left to women and to those organizations that represent women alone. Both women and men who understand the inequality that exists, and the dire consequences of this disparity should continue to push regional and global institutions, governments, companies, and community and religious organizations to make changes- Tangible changes in their perceptions, policies, and systems.
While continuing to promote gender equality, the long-term and lasting solution is to raise competent women leaders at all levels. In my humble opinion, it’s possible women advocacy organizations to kill two birds using one stone if the lion share of such organizations’ priority, focus, and investment is directed toward building the leadership capacity of women.
The more women become leaders at home, in the neighborhood, work, and marketplaces, the more they will have real chances to influence and ultimately bridge both the gender inequality, and the leadership gap that exists at all levels.
Myself as women’s rights advocate, leadership expert, and our non-profit organization- PRO Leadership Global Inc., we are committed to playing our share. We look forward to partner with all concerned stakeholders to bridge the gender leadership gap, and in turn empower women to play their contributions in tackling local, national, regional, and global challenges we are facing. It’s possible. We can use 1 stone (developing women’s leadership capacity) to kill 2 birds- gender inequality and leadership gap.
