Three Women Parliamentarians Represent Belize at Commonwealth Secretariat

Three women parliamentarians are representing Belize at the Commonwealth Secretariat’s workshop on Leadership for Good Governance and Social Transformation in the Caribbean. The representatives include, House Speaker Valerie Woods, the Minister of State in the Ministry of Human Development, Elvia Vega-Samos, and the President of the Senate, Carolyn Trench-Sandiford. The parliamentarians are joined by their counterparts and other women in civil society and youth organizations from across the Caribbean to discuss approaches and opportunities to promote women’s transformational leadership and gender equality in parliamentary duties. Over the three-day workshop, there will be several sessions focusing on good governance and transformational leadership, political and parliamentary work, gender equality in parliamentary processes and functions, engaging men as allies, and creating international and intra-regional partnerships. The workshop follows previous meetings held in 2018 on gender equality and barriers to women’s political leadership.
