What's New at NDI Gender, Women and Democracy (GWD):

Global Women's Leadership Program

This week, GWD Senior Advisor Caroline Hubbard led NDI's third Global Women's Leadership Program (GWLP) delegation to the final Habitat III Preparatory Committee in Surabaya, Indonesia. Participants included MPs from Ukraine, Pakistan, Burma, and Nigeria. Learn more about GWLP  here.

NDI-Stanford Tech Lab

We are pleased to announce that NDI has partnered with Stanford University to offer a free, open, bilingual (Arabic/English) online course: the Technology for Accountability Lab (#TFALab). This action-oriented course is intended to facilitate learning and collaboration between two audiences: civic activists who have an interest in using technology in their work and technologists who are interested in using their skills to build a more democratic and less corrupt world. For more information or to register, please click here.


Violence should never be the cost of politics -- and our campaign to make sure it isn't was launched at our #NotTheCost Conference on March 17th in New York City. Register for a copy of our Call to Action, which provides practical tools for stopping violence against women in politics, and join the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #NotTheCost.
