#CSW66 HerStory: Gendered Spoken Accounts of the Northern Ireland Conflict
Join us for an intimate journey through Northern Ireland’s troubled past and hear the voices of women who lived through this as well as the young women who are shaping Northern Ireland’s future.
You’ll hear from women from all walks of life who experienced pain, bereavement, and enlightenment, and hear about the impact of paramilitarism and how that shaped the narrative of their lives
Training for Women Network (TWN) is an organisation in special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council since 2012. (United Nations)
Established in 1996, Training for Women Network (TWN) is Northern Ireland’s leading network for the promotion of women’s training and development, through policy, training, networking and education.
Since then, TWN has provided resources within the community to empower women across the public and voluntary sectors, the trade unions, education and training in taking a more active and informed role within a changing Northern Ireland requiring new capacity, knowledge, skills and experience.
TWN is a first stop shop for women in Northern Ireland seeking information on training, development and entrepreneurship.
It is one of the largest networks in Northern Ireland with a membership that exceeds 300 members.
The majority of TWN’s activities encourage women from disadvantaged and minority groupings to look at opportunities for advancement in a variety of ways.
