Advocacy Workshop – save the date!
Wednesday 3 July 2013, 10.00 am – 4.00 pm
Resource for London, Holloway Road, London
(Open to Peer Learning Programme members only)
The advocacy workshop will focus on how small and diaspora organisations can use advocacy to increase their impact. By working through participatory advocacy tools, participants will strengthen their understanding of how to incorporate advocacy within their work and the basic steps in developing an advocacy strategy. The workshop will also provide an opportunity to share participant’s experience of advocacy and the challenges and opportunities it presents for organisations in the PLP.
Jenny Ross will facilitate the workshop along with other members of the PLP team. Jenny has been working in the international and humanitarian NGO sector for over a decade with organisations such as Oxfam GB, DFID and Restless Development. Jenny is an advocacy trainer and consultant. She has been involved in strategy development for national country programmes and international campaigns, including coordinating Bond’s ‘Make Poverty History’ campaign. Jenny has conducted advocacy at UN, EU, OECD and UK Government and Parliamentary level. She has conducted training and capacity building for international and local NGOs in both the UK and internationally including Ethiopia, Cameroon, Nigeria, Uganda and Nepal.
