Just Released: New Multimedia Leadership Learning Tools in Arabic

Multimedia Leadership Tool in Arabic

HRH Princess Basma receives the first copy of the Arabic multimedia leadership curriculum

WLP and its Jordan partner worked together with colleagues in Lebanon and Palestine to create the Arabic edition of Leading to Choices: A Multimedia Curriculum for Leadership Learning. The curriculum’s three DVDs, dubbed in Arabic, use the voices of well-known actors from Jordan and the region to share new concepts in a familiar idiom. The curriculum includes a training handbook and three guides that provide interactive, scenario-based activities. Examples of participatory and democratic learning throughout the curriculum enable human rights and democracy activists, educators, women leaders, and facilitators to learn how to implement successful advocacy campaigns, communicate effectively with the media, and train trainers.

Sisterhood Is Global Institute/Jordan (WLP Jordan), Collective for Research & Training on Development-Action (WLP Lebanon), Women's Affairs Technical Committee (WLP Palestine), Association Democratique des Femmes du Maroc (WLP Morocco), and L'Association des Femmes Chefs de Famille (WLP Mauritania), tested the sessions in workshops with their constituents and integrated the feedback into the final adaptation.

The Arabic edition is the fourth culture-specific adaptation of WLP’s innovative multimedia training package. It will be used in training of trainers programs throughout the Arab world that focus on leadership training, coalition building, messaging, and advocacy relating to women's human rights campaigns. Arabic, English, French, and Persian editions are available online.
