We seek to promote women leaders in the sustainability agenda.

There is still a way to go towards including female leaders in decision-making processes in the public, private and civil society sectors. This is largely due to a lack of openness to change in traditional structures, the short periods of permanence in these spaces, and a lack of collective work among women. This is how the Women in Motion Initiative was born: a collective and horizontal work exercise that seeks to bring feminine power to the sustainability agenda to meet the SDGs and the NUA.

The objective of the Seminar was to give women techniques of the sustainable agenda, share practical tools to promote modern leadership, and promote collaborative work amongst women and support female power in the transport and energy sectors. The Seminar included modules on women's leadership, networking, circular economy, (self) empowerment, conflict management, strategic communication, and more. The Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative (TUMI) and the Women in Motion Initiative (IMEM), in collaboration with the ECLAC, are the organizations in charge of this Women in Motion Seminar - Building Sustainable Leaderships.
