Offline course for Jordanian women leaders
Every year Ahel teaches a 4 months course for women leaders that is similar to the online one focuses on leadership and organizing practices. Unlike the online course, this one does not necessitate that the women applicants have active campaigns, but it requires that they are leaders in their field. The course this year 2020, is an expanded version that includes modules about women rights movement and feminist theory. Applications will open in July and the course will start in September to end in December. Last year the course graduated 24 women and this year we are targeting 28 women leaders.
