PeacemakeHers aims to educate and inspire young women to be local, regional and global leaders in peacemaking.

We are all about supporting young women to become leaders for peace; women who are practicing peace in their local communities; women promoting peaceful policy from their governments; women working toward peace in our global society. Peace means many things, to many people and PeacemakeHers celebrates the diversity of voices striving for peace in our world.

Our conference knows that women are essential voices in the peacemaking process, that women must be included in decision-making at all levels of government, that feminist analysis is essential to process, and that collaboration and cooperation are key elements of process. Building capacity within and across generations of women will empower creative solutions to problems in community, private and public sectors and society.

PeacemakeHers works in partnership with agencies and organizations which value women’s voices. Get in touch with us to talk about how we can promote peace together.
