The ability to think critically, analyze situations, make difficult decisions, and solve complex problems is referred to as power analysis.
This skill is essential for anyone aspiring to a position of leadership because it entails taking in information from various situations and mentally processing it in a productive manner or action.
Because of the marginalization of the area, indigenous women pursuing elective leadership positions lack adequate power analysis skills.
As a result, they have less access to and poorer quality education. Leadership candidates must be well-versed in financial aid, best campaign strategies, and mapping out their opponents, supporters, and strongholds, among other things, in order to effectively pitch their interests.
SWT envisions a society that upholds human rights, fundamental freedom, well-being, and dignity of women and girls in these indigenous communities by strengthening their capacities to influence policies, decision-making processes, and address harmful cultural practices in Kenya.
SWT is also the founder and convener of the Coalition of Indigenous Women (CIWO), an indigenous women-led movement with over 40 member organizations representing indigenous, hunter-gatherer, fisher folk, and disabled women.
We conducted a power analysis skills training with Indigenous women leaders, indigenous women aspirants, and young women.
The power analysis skills training comes as a result of previous training SWT has provided to indigenous women leaders and aspirants in order to help them gain access to political and leadership positions.
Participants gained knowledge of power analysis skills that will aid them in their leadership endeavors.
Strengthened the indigenous women’s movement by equipping them with the skills they need to participate effectively in the electoral process.
