WeCiE : A Space For Connect, Share and Promote
WeCiE is a network born out of the need to increase the visibility of the work women of colour specialists are doing on gender-based violence during an emergency or conflict in their own countries and elsewhere. This forum provides a space for individual specialists to connect to women of colour around the globe, share experiences and solutions, exchange resources, and to collaborate on opportunities.
The main purpose of the network is to create a strong informal bond between women of colour across the globe who are working on issues of gender-based violence – often in some very challenging conflict and emergency settings. The work can be difficult, and lonely. Particularly if you are the only GBV specialist around, and even more so, if you are a woman of colour in a field where we are not often very visible.
This network seeks to address this sense of isolation, invisibility and much more. It is the hope that in time, through all of us, we will be able to create a hub to share expertise, showcase our work through the blog and podcast functionalities of this site and elsewhere.
So, If you are a woman of colour working in the field of Gender-based Violence in emergencies – this space was created uniquely for you and we hope to see you in the WeCiE network.
