This project aims to strengthen the leadership capacities of Venezuelan women leaders from the political opposition and civil society to collaborate better and actively advance a more inclusive and diverse approach to rebuilding the country’s democratic institutions. Project activities include: (1) training and roundtables on effective negotiations, transitional justice, communications and effective gender inclusion strategies; (2) producing policy briefs containing concrete actions for the inclusion of women in Venezuela’s peacebuilding efforts; (3) delivering a media campaign to promote women in peacebuilding processes; and (4) hosting a summit that will analyze the Venezuelan crisis from a gender perspective and discuss how to mitigate the challenges specific to women.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes of this project include: (1) increased collaboration among Venezuelan women leaders and broader civil society networks, political democratic actors, and the international community to align the opposition’s efforts better and allow for the representation of more diverse perspectives to be included in peacebuilding efforts; (2) improved knowledge among political and civil society women leaders in Venezuela of negotiation, communication, and conflict resolution theory and skills; and (3) improved visibility of Venezuelan political and civil society women leaders and of the importance of including women in peacemaking processes. The ultimate outcome of this project is for women to increase their leadership in Venezuela’s peacebuilding efforts.
