Week of Women (WoW) is a nationwide, annual event that gathers, in a cross-ethnic setting, more than 120 women and men from Kosovo’s political parties, civil society, business, media, and academia, with the aim of expanding the pipeline of local women leaders skilled to assume greater leadership positions. Since the first WoW eight years ago, the event has become a critical venue for policy debate and intensive discussion with leading politicians and elected officials, enabling participants to hold their representatives to account while simultaneously developing and shining a spotlight on women’s leadership. WoW is organized by the National Democratic Institute (NDI) in Kosovo, with the generous support of the United States Agency for International Development. NDI would also like to thank the Embassy of Canada to Croatia and Kosovo and UN Women for their support of 2020WoW.
