Women's Leadership Workshop

Empowering Women in Radiocommunications Negotiations

The 2015 Radiocommunication Assembly (RA) and the World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC) are major events for the Union. Both events have witnessed over 15 years of growing synergy between female delegates, with credit to the annual Women's breakfast. 

To build on this successful initiative ITU is partnering with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) to organize the first Women's Leadership Workshop for women delegates accredited to the RA and WRC.
