Geneva, 4 November 2015 – ITU is proud to be among the first UN agencies in Geneva to offer comprehensive professional training in leadership and negotiation skills to Member State and Sector Member women as part of its commitment to promoting equality of opportunity for all delegates attending major ITU meetings and conferences.
The Women’s Leadership Workshop: Empowering Women in Radiocommunications Negotiations took place at ITU headquarters on Sunday, 1 November, just ahead of the opening of ITU’s World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-15, 2-27 November). Director of the Radiocommunication Bureau, François Rancy, and UNITAR Executive Director and UN Assistant Secretary-General, Nikhil Seth, welcomed nearly 30 women from across ITU regions, who spent the day with expert trainers and women staff from ITU’s Radiocommunication Bureau to tailor their leadership skills, exchange knowledge and interact with role models attending the WRC-15 conference. The workshop gave all participants a unique opportunity to share their ideas and tips on how to overcome career challenges, develop their own leadership style, and build on their personal strengths.
