IPOD is deeply committed to the empowerment and political strengthening of women, recognizing their crucial role in fostering inclusive and representative governance. We have implemented targeted programs aimed at equipping women with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to actively participate in political processes. Through leadership training, mentorship initiatives, and capacity-building workshops, we empower women to overcome systemic barriers and navigate the complexities of political engagement with confidence. By providing a supportive platform, we seek to amplify women’s voices, cultivate leadership potential, and bolster their ability to effect positive change within political spheres.

In addition to individual empowerment, IPOD actively advocates for systemic changes to create an environment conducive to women’s political participation and leadership. We engage in policy advocacy to promote gender-sensitive legislation and work collaboratively with stakeholders such as Parliamentary Committees and caucuses among others to establish mechanisms that encourage women’s inclusion at all levels of government. Recognizing the intersectionality of gender with other aspects of identity, our initiatives are designed to be inclusive, addressing the diverse challenges faced by women from various backgrounds. Through these comprehensive efforts, IPOD strives not only to increase the quantity but also the quality of women’s political engagement, fostering a political landscape that is truly representative and responsive to the needs of all Ugandans.
