Participants use a hands on activity to explore their personal understanding of gender. This first step is essential in developing the ability to empower others coming from a different gender perspective.

TIRANA, ALBANIA     USAID and USEUCOM partnered in support of the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Act of 2017 to provide a two-day, interactive training to Implementing Partners and staff from USAID and the Government of Albania’s National Countering Violent Extremism Center May 15-16. Ms. Samantha Turner, a WPS Specialist from USEUCOM, led participants in a practical exercise to distill a gender perspective from their PVE priorities in order to build inclusive activities. This collaboration is unique as it is the first time that USEUCOM has directly supported the interagency mandate laid out in the aforementioned law and sets the stage for CIV-MIL interactions in this realm going forward.
