On International Women’s Day 2019, Alinea would like to acknowledge the hard work and success of our partner in Ukraine, the Ukrainian Association of Woman in Law Enforcement (UAWLE).
With support from Global Affairs Canada, Alinea and the Government of Ukraine worked together through our Police Training Assistance Project (PTAP) to establish UAWLE in March 2018. The mission of the Association is to promote gender equality and equal rights and opportunities for women and men in law enforcement in Ukraine. Celebrating it’s one year anniversary this month, UAWLE is already establishing itself as a bastion of strong Ukranian women leaders, and a key player in Ukraine’s noted progress in Gender Equality.
On March 6th, a delegation from UWALE visited the offices of the European Union Advisory Mission (EUAM) Ukraine to give a presentation as part of International Women’s Day festivities. The link to the original article can be found here.
