workshop on women in diplomacy From 25 to 26 August 2011, the UNITAR New York Office is organizing a workshop on “Women in Diplomacy” at the United Nations Headquarters. The workshop aims at enhancing the negotiation skills of women delegates and to enhance their skills to assume leadership roles in multilateral diplomacy.

The workshop is part of the UNITAR / Olof Palme Memorial Fund 2011 Negotiation Series “Towards a level playing field”. It is designed as an advanced-level skills-building course for women diplomats, particularly those from developing and least developed countries. It will provide participants with an overview of the challenges faced by women in institutional hierarchies, review the main concepts and approaches to negotiating effectively, with a particular focus on gender and negotiations, and assess the role of women in diplomacy with regard to advocacy and leadership. Through case studies and interactive exercises, it aims, overall, to equip delegates with the skills necessary to advance to leadership positions at the United Nations.
