Launched in 2011, the Bangladesh Country Chapter’s mission is to increase the political and the economic empowerment of women, create awareness about democratic rights afforded to women in Bangladesh, ensure active participation of women in parliament, and promote women’s leadership in all spheres of life.
In 2012, the Bangladesh Chapter launched its Women’s Leadership School initiative to increase the capacity of women to actively participate in the upcoming elections in 2013 and 2014. One of the highest priorities of Chapter members is to encourage women who aspire to run for office to first focus on the various steps to secure a nomination within their political party. Further, the Chapter includes a unique representation of entrepreneurs who, with the support of politically active Chapter members, are interested in seguing into a political career.
