Juanita M. Bryant Leadership Training Program

The WomenNC Leadership Training Program is a competitive application-based comprehensive leadership development opportunity for college and university students. The aim of the program is consistent with the organization’s vision: empowering the next generation to advance gender equality in North Carolina.
The program is comprised of several parts. First is a workshop series at which scholars are trained to be advocates, social scientific researchers, and public speakers. Then, scholars engage in research about the status of women in particular NC communities. This year’s foci include significant work in Durham where scholars from NCSU, UNC Chapel Hill, NCCU, and Duke have produced actionable research from improving the reentry experience of formerly incarcerated women to reducing gun domestic violence. Other topics that scholars have researched and for which they have provided policy solutions to improve the status quo include improving access to quality healthcare across NC.

Population(s) Served

Our programming brings experts in the field in content areas of specific interest to women, including sexual assault, human trafficking, the status of the Equal Right Amendment, and voting access, to our constituency. This helps them understand the need for continued activism and advocacy on behalf of women and girls.

In the time of COVID this programming is held virtually as Lunch “n” Learn events, streaming live on our Facebook page and uploaded on our YouTube channel. We hope these events will soon be in-person to audiences around the state.

We are advocates for gender equity in local, state, and international arenas. Armed with their research and recommendations, our scholars present their findings to and advocate in front of local elected officials, community members, and international officials and activists at the United Nations’ annual Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) to improve the lives of women and girls.

We have spearheaded the Cities and Counties for the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) movement in North Carolina, which seeks to enshrine principles of gender equity into local political deliberative processes. In 2017 and 2018, Durham County and the city of Durham, respectively, created sustainable mechanisms for ensuring gender equity by requiring them to evaluate their programs and budgets annually to ensure that each addresses barriers to equality faced by women.
