IWP Networking and Skills Development Meeting: October 5, 2010


On October 5, 2010 IF hosted a networking and development meeting for the 15 Iraqi Women Parliamentarians (IWPs) who are participating in IF’s Post Election Democracy Project (PEDP).  Meeting at the  Al-Alwiyah Social Club in Baghdad to strengthen skills as leading legislators and community leaders, the 15 participants discussed two main topics: Parliament committees’ work and how to choose the right committee; and the importance of setting up a parliamentary office. The meeting was chaired by former MP Dr. Amira Al-Baldawi and three re-elected parliamentarians and a former parliamentarian’s head of office were invited to the meeting and shared their experiences with the new IWPs.

Due to the blast that occurred on a road that leads to the meeting venue, many IWPs were not able to make it to the meeting. IF sent the minutes to those who were not able to attend.
