Round-table Discussion for Young Women

In 2019 the National Women’s Commission held a round-table discussion for high school girls in collaboration with the Department of Youth services. 25 young women from nine Belize City High Schools participated in the interactive session. The objectives of the session were to empower the students on:

  • Gender, gender-based violence and discriminatory/stereotyping cultures, attitudes and behaviours as it relates to gender and gender-based violence (NGBVAP)
  • Leadership, mentorship, and community activism in their area of gender equality (WIP-recommendation)

These students were to implement an awareness program in their school with the assistance of their school counselor or teachers.
