DEADLINE: MARCH 24, 2022 —Nigerian journalists working in the areas women and women’s economic empowerment (WEE) can enroll in a one-week certificate course in Development Communication for WEE.
The course is facilitated by Association of Communication Scholars & Professionals of Nigeria (ACSPN) in collaboration with Women in Media, a CSO partner of the Partnership for Advancing Women in Economic Development (PAWED) project.

ACSPN and PAWED will fully fund this course including fees, accommodation, study materials, incidentals, and transportation for all selected participants.
