On 15 and 16 September, a training on “International Negotiations: How can they be most effective?” took place at the esteemed Clingeldael Institute in the Hague for several ambassadors from the Women Ambassadors Group in The Netherlands.
The coordination between the three parties: Director of Clingendael Academy, Mr. Ron Ton, the Head of the Women Ambassadors Group in the Netherlands, Yemeni Ambassador H.E. Ms. Sahar Ghanem and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, produced a training designed for a joint group of women Ambassadors and women directors of the Dutch MFA, and funded by the Dutch MFA.
The training targeted those who operate in an international context and may encounter situations that require negotiations in order to solve complex issues. It also provided participants with important insights and skills to be more successful as an international woman negotiator with emphasis on the political context of negotiations and the extra challenges women face.
The training was performed by the Director of the Academy, Ron Ton and the Coach at the Academy, Ms. Mara van der Meer. By the end participants received a certificate of participation.
