Advancing Gender Equality and Peace: CGG and GNWP Regional Workshops

Campaign for Good Governance (CGG), in partnership with the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP), recently conducted a series of regional workshops focusing on the Gender Equality and Women Empowerment (GEWE) Act 2022 and the Women, Peace, and Security (WPS) agenda.

These workshops, held across various regions, aimed to enhance awareness, understanding, and implementation of these crucial frameworks in Sierra Leone.

With the GEWE Act 2022 serving as a cornerstone for promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment, CGG and GNWP recognized the importance of ensuring its effective implementation at all levels of society.

Through interactive sessions and participatory discussions, participants gained insights into the provisions of the act and explored strategies for advancing gender equality in their communities.

Moreover, the workshops delved into the Women, Peace, and Security agenda, emphasizing the pivotal role of women in conflict prevention, resolution, and peacebuilding.

Participants learned about the key principles and components of the WPS agenda and discussed practical approaches for integrating gender perspectives into peace and security efforts.

The regional workshops provided a platform for diverse stakeholders, including government officials, civil society representatives, and community leaders, to exchange ideas, share best practices, and forge partnerships to advance gender equality and peace in Sierra Leone.

As a result of these workshops, participants emerged with enhanced knowledge, skills, and commitment to championing gender equality and peace in their respective regions.

By empowering individuals and communities with the tools and resources needed to promote women’s rights and contribute to peacebuilding efforts, CGG and GNWP are paving the way for a more inclusive and equitable society in Sierra Leone.

Moving forward, CGG and GNWP remain dedicated to supporting ongoing efforts to implement the GEWE Act 2022 and advance the Women, Peace, and Security agenda.

Through continued collaboration and collective action, they are working towards a future where gender equality is upheld, women’s voices are amplified, and peace prevails across Sierra Leone.
