Hello all,

As you may know, we are in partnership with the FVPSA Office to 
implement the WOCN Leadership Academy and Aspiring Allies Project. The 
first round of states that we are working with over the next 18 months 
are Vermont, Virginia, Minnesota and New Jersey.

Leadership Fellows will receive skills building training, mentoring, and 
networking opportunities that will enhance the leadership will build 
skills and enhance the potential for talented women of color, immigrant 
or refugeewomen, disabled women, LGBTQ women and women from other 
underserved populations to become our next generation of leaders in 
violence against women programs and the movement working to combat 
violence against women.

This project is at no cost to them or their agency. The only investment 
is time on bi-weekly calls or webinars with homework in between.Fellows 
will also attend 3 national face-to-face leadership academy convenings 
over a year and a half and will participate in a regular webinars and 
conference calls.

We are also seeking applicants for the Aspiring Allies training 
program.Aspiring Allies will participate in an 18-month distance 
learning program.Participation will build allies’ skills and enhance 
their abilities to support, share leadership with and collaborate 
effectively with women of color, immigrant women and other underserved 
women leaders in the diverse multi-cultural, multi-ethnic violence 
against women field.

Please help us recruit participants for the WOCN Leadership Academy and 
the Aspiring Allies program.Share this application broadly to encourage 
individuals you know apply.
