Are you interested in applying for Pink Parliament’s Class of 2021-2022?

Here’s what you need to know!

Pink Parliament is an initiative by Life In Leggings: Caribbean Alliance Against Gender-based Violence in collaboration with The Barbados Youth Development Council and in partnership with the The University of the West Indies, Open Campus – Women & Development Unit.

The initiative seeks to inspire and encourage girls and young women between the ages 14-20 to pursue careers in politics and to lead unapologetically. Pink Parliament equips participants with the tools to be bold and effective advocates through professional training, mentorship and networking sessions with political leaders.

Our vision is to increase the participation of women in politics by raising consciousness and cultivate in this generation, young feminist leaders who are ready to champion the issues that they are passionate about and/or affect them. Young feminist leaders who have a desire to redefine male-dominated political and decision-making spaces.

So how do you apply?

Applications for our third cohort opened on June 1st, 2021 and will close on July 31st, 2021.
