New Faces, More Voices is a leadership training institute of the National Council of Women's Organizations (NCWO). Launched during summer 1999, the purpose of this program is to strengthen the women's movement by providing leadership training and skill building for interns of NCWO member organizations. As a complement to their internship policy work, this program provides NCWO member organization interns with the training they need to engage in effective advocacy and organizing around feminist social justice issues.
Through seminars and workshops, New Faces, More Voices fosters communication and collaboration among NCWO interns, feminist policymakers, and other organizations with compatible social and economic goals. Through generous funding from Lifetime Television and the Ms. Foundation, this unique opportunity for broad-based training and cross-generational dialogue provides interns with the skills they need for advocating for women's equity beyond their internships in Washington, D.C.
The New Faces, More Voices leadership training institute has three components:
• Feminist Leadership Training Program
• Feminist Networking and Mentoring
• Career Development
All sessions are held on Thursday afternoons from 3:00 PM- 5:00 PM with the exception of the Lobby Day.
