A panel discussion titled ‘Role of Women in Peace-building, Reconciliation and ensuring Accountability,’ marked the culmination of the training organized by Tibetan Women’s Association.

The training covered areas such as critical thinking, personal effectiveness, communications strategy, social media and leadership, leading self and others, leadership strategy and execution. The outbound training included field trips to riot affected regions in UP’s Muzaffarnagar district, covering stories in real-life settings, lobbying Indian leaders, participation in NDTV debate and an exclusive panel discussion with famed Indian speakers.
