For corporations looking to build the capacity of their human resource to engage with complex diversities, EMPOWER’s workshops and training programmes will be beneficial. We have a flexible, creative team of trainers specialising in diversity and women’s leadership. Our workshops can be designed to suit your needs.
State Agency Training
EMPOWER’s trainers are experienced in training government agencies and local councils on gender, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), and women’s leadership.
Training State Agencies and Service Providers
EMPOWER has previously conducted a Training of Trainers and four pilot trainings on Democratic Governance for youths, village heads, government-linked companies and the Selangor State Economic Planning Unit, in partnership with the Selangor state government. We have also conducted workshops on democratic governance for local councillors.
Training Community Stakeholders
EMPOWER conducts trainings for many of the communities and constituents serviced by state agencies and local councils.
In 2009, EMPOWER conducted the “Women’s Right to Health – Empower and Live” project for young women and mothers who were hearing disabled, funded by the Lembaga Promosi Kesihatan (Health Promotion Board) of the Ministry of Health. The stakeholders came up with recommendations for future follow-ups to enable the deaf community to conduct future rights-based trainings for their own community. Despite a few meetings with the Board in 2010, our proposal to continue the project was not taken up due to the restructuring of the Board and its focus.
