The Women Mediators across the Commonwealth (WMC) network was launched in July 2017, following the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in April 2017. The network emphasises the invaluable work that women mediators are doing across these different spaces, and aims to increase the visibility of their role in addressing conflict and sustainable peacebuilding.
Members come together through peer-to-peer learning initiatives, mediation trainings and network development workshops. Collectively the network advocates for the increased participation of women in peace processes both locally, regionally and internationally, by enhancing existing spaces and identifying new spaces and opportunities for engagement. The network is coordinated by the peacebuilding organisation Conciliation Resources.
