“Participatory female leaders”

Phronesis is a partner in the project: “Development of the curriculum for the training programme “Participatory female leaders (supported by Norwegian know-how)”. The leading organisation is the Dialogue Centre, established in 2018 in Banská Bystrica, Slovakia. Susan Morales Guerra and Kirsten Paaby is the two experts from Phronesis involved in the project


Through the partnership we will develop a curriculum for the training programme that would focus on building capacities of female leaders in the area of participatory leadership to support the development of active and resilient society in Slovakia as well as to support the empowerment and active citizenship of women. The purpose of the project is also to build the relationship with Phronsis as the partner organisation from Norway with the view of long-term cooperation in developing and delivering proposed training programme ““Participatory female leaders”.


Two main areas of project’s concern are participatory and female leadership. Nowadays, the society struggles with many complex challenges worldwide as well as in Slovakia (e.g. COVID-19, sustainable development, climate change, reform and innovative challenges, erosion of democratic values, etc.). The very promising mean of dealing with such issues appears to be the socalled “participatory leadership” approach that originates among other in the Art of Hosting.
