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.
We are pleased to be able to report that Women Making a Difference have been named by Estyn, the education and training inspectorate for Wales, as one of three best practice case studies in their November 2014 report. The report itself focuses on how well adult community learning and work-based learning providers implement learner-involvement strategies.
The report pays attention to Women Making a Difference's work across South Wales and the outcomes of our courses. It notes that learners have utilised their new skills and knowledge to organise a range of activities and highlights the accomplishments of the women who have participated in our courses, including being appointed as School Governors and standing for Parliamentary elections.
Do you think women's lives in the UK have changed for the better or worse in the past five years?
We recently tweeted the link to a survey launched by The UK Government's Equalities Office to collect views on improving the lives of women and girls in the UK.
The UK Government has commissioned the survey in order to hear your views on which issues regarding gender equality matter the most to you. It features questions to identify the greatest barriers to improving the lives of women and girls and asks what the Government should make a priority in the future.
The Minister for Women and Equalities Nicky Morgan said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for individual women, men and civil society groups to have their voices heard on gender equality. Almost 20 years ago the UK signed the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action to end gender inequality and now we want to hear from you."
