Our training courses are free of charge and open to every woman in Wales, with no prerequisites to join. We want to see more women in decision-making roles, as the School Governors, Councillors and Board Members of tomorrow.
Burma blog day 2
The sun broke through my curtains around 6am and I slowly realised that I was a long way from home. Bleary-eyed from jet lag, but desperate to dive further into our adventure, I headed to the YMCA in Yangon, for our second day on the Burma ISV.
We played an introduction game before being told our precious biographies had been cut to ribbons by mistake! Our challenge was to sort out the jumbled fragments of everyone's identities and to try to find their owners. Slowly but surely, amid laughter and conversation, we literally put ourselves back together again.
Everyone is welcome to this free, family-friendly event.
We hope to see you there!
30th November – 7th December
The first ever screenings of Watch-Africa, the first African Film Festival in Wales starts on 30th November.
The festive of African films and activities will consist of:
- 12 Feature Long Films; Including the widely-acclaimed and Oscar Nominated, 'Nairobi Half Life'.
- 4 Short Films (Animations; Documentaries and Fiction)
- Panel Discussions on the topics presented by some of the films with contributions from academics at the University of Cardiff.
- Master-classes in Scriptwriting facilitated and delivered by Rungano Nyoni, a BAFTA winning Welsh-Zambian film-maker.
- A lecture on the Explorative Journey through the Awra Amba Experience.
Across the UK today, women in full-time work earn an average 15 per cent less an hour than men. For every £1 men take home, women are getting just 85p.
Translated into working days this means women are, in effect, working for free from 7th November until the New Year.
