ECADE welcomes new IACHR commissioners
notes Caribbean States’ reservations on human rights
Conference hosts, ECADE and United and Strong are pleased to announce that #CWSDC2017 will be held in Saint Lucia, from October 5-9, 2017.
More than just a conference, #CWSDC is a network, a safe space and an incubator for LBTI activists.
The CWSDC provides a space for female- and trans-identified activists to strengthen advocacy and develop the regional network of support for activism related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality, with an emphasis on women’s issues.
For more on this and previous conferences, see the CWSDC page.
Board members gathered for a three-day accountability and governance workshop in May to build their capacity to better meet ECADE's goals. Consultant Josh Drayton of the University of the West Indies St. Augustine, conducted the workshop, following an in-depth institutional assessment.
The meeting, in Saint Lucia, also reviewed ECADE's policy documents, including its strategic plan.
The Board left with a better vision and much firmer structure to achieve its long-term goals.
