Women's Public Leadership Program

Our training aims to equip participants with practical managerial knowledge and foster a talented community that advocates for female leadership.

The Women's Public Leadership Training Program started in 2018 to address the under-representation of women in public life. The program provides free training to young women aged 18-36 with Hungarian and English language skills, focusing on lectures, skills development, meetings with leaders, projects, e-learning materials, and community events. Participants will gain hands-on knowledge and meet respected Hungarian and foreign leaders, experts, and politicians. The program is supported by the National Talent Program and the Human Capacities Grant Management Office, under the patronage of Katalin Novák, Minister without Portfolio for Families.

Some of our guest speakers were:

  • Katalin Novák, Former State Secretary for Family and Youth Affairs, Ministry of Human Capacities
  • Dr. Petra Aczél, Linguist, Expert in Communication and Rhetoric; University Professor
  • Gergely Gulyás, Minister of the Prime Minister's Office
  • David Venter, Former Chief Communications Advisor to Nelson Mandela
  • Malcolm Gillies, Former Vice-Chancellor of London Metropolitan University
  • Judit Varga, Minister of Justice

During the training program, participants utilize the e-learning platform to complete assignments such as essays, presentations, speeches, research, and video production. A total of 5-7 assignments are expected to be submitted.

The program is supported by the National Talent Program and the Human Capacities Grant Management Office.
