She Leads – We Lead, Fingal

A new programme led by local women leaders in Fingal explores the achievements, challenges, and opportunities that women experience in community action.This free introduction session and 8 week programme introduces women in Fingal to the leadership skills, resources and approaches already successful in Fingal, and supports them in the early development of leadership activities to improve life in our communities and neighbourhoods.

Our local leaders are longtime activists in their communities, particularly addressing social issues and sustainable neighborhoods, and use a variety of perspectives including disability, migrant rights, Traveller rights, and interfaith. They’ll bring you through the programme with real life advice, stories and feedback on your ideas.
