Celebrating staff achievements
Two WCPFC Secretariat staff, Jeannie Hawley (RFV Officer) and Virginia Ezekias (VMS Operations Officer) celebrate their recent completion of the Fale Women in Leadership Workshop Series.
The Fale workshops have been developed specifically for women in Pacific contexts to explore together their ideas of leadership, to safely examine the systems they work in and to strategise and decide what actions they will take including to personally lead and influence positive changes.
Jeannie was one of three of the workshop attendees chosen to provide a presentation at the final workshop that summed up their thoughts and learnings on the course. Both are grateful to their fellow attendees for openly sharing their experiences and have already been putting some of the tools they have learnt to good use. Jeannie and Virgie say they are continuing to develop their own leadership skills, to challenge themselves and to build wider support networks with their co-workers.
