Women Leaders In International Relations: Comparing EU and US Experiences


  • Italian Cultural Institute 38 Rue de Livourne Bruxelles, Bruxelles, 1000 Belgium

Italian Cultural Institute in Brussels, 8 - 12 July 2013

30 women leaders involved in international relations found their inspiration and improved their capacity to successfully lead, communicate, negotiate and build trust, as a woman, in a international and too often male dominated environment

In July 2013, the Italian Cultural Institute in Brussels, the Jean Monnet Center of Excellence at the University of Rome Tor Vergata and the National School of Public Administration (SSPA) joined forces with Women in Public Service Project (WPSP) and Women's Campaign International for a week-long training program. 

In line with the rigorous WPSP curriculum and guidelines, we designed an intensive week focused on how to successfully tackle and overcome the specific difficulties embedded in negotiating internationally as a woman leader: communication skills; building self confidence and mutual trust in a often male-dominated and foreign environment; building partnerships and effective networking and the difficult management of work-family balance (often  at  a  distance),  etc.
