Political Empowerment of Women in Sierra Leone: A Path Toward Sustainable Peace
Sierra Leone Project Team Leader, Loretta Raider, is speaking at the quarterly meeting of WIL of Greater Philadelphia regarding her work with Mediators Beyond Borders (MBB).
The program will cover how she and her MBB team addressed the systemic issues facing political development and stability in post-conflict Sierra Leone, specifically through the engagement of women citizens in the political process. These efforts contributed to building unity for peaceful elections, which were achieved for the first time since the civil war ended in 2002. She will also share MBB’s future plans to roll out a women’s leadership program for political aspirants.
WIL of Greater Philadelphia is a community of women who share the vision that women and their families should live healthy, safe lives. Through service, education, and micro-finance programs, WIL seeks to empower women throughout the world to become leaders in their own communities.
Loretta Raider is Principal of The Raider Consulting Group – a firm specializing in Global Leadership, Team and Organization Development and the current President of WIL.
