NOVI SAD - The first in a series of Women Leadership Academies (WLA) was organized by the Belgrade Fund for Political Excellence (BFPE) and United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in Novi Sad from September 16 – 19, 2015. Thirty five women politicians from seventeen political parties discussed gender representation and how to advocate for gender equality in policy processes.

Almost two hundred women politicians from more than thirty political parties in Serbia applied to participate in this year’s two academies in Novi Sad and Niš, and thirty-five of the best-ranked applicants participated in the Novi Sad academy.

“In Serbia, many women politicians want to progress in their careers, run for public office or learn more about gender equality. Through this project we want to help them achieve their goals. The Academy equips women in politics with the knowledge and skills they need to fight for the positions they deserve", said Mina Lazarević, Project Manager at the BFPE.
