Women are clearly underrepresented in the political system of Indonesia. The targeted 30% quota for female elected parliament members has so far been clearly missed. In cooperation with the organization B_Trust and the Indonesian Political Women Caucus (Kaukus Perempuan Politik Indonesia), theoretical and practical trainings are held for female politicians from various parties. With the help of communication experts, psychologists and experienced women politicians, the skills and competences of women are to be improved in order to strengthen them in the political competition. On the 26- 28 September, a workshop took place in Tangerang for female MPs from the Banten / West Jakarta region. There were 30 women representing four different parties in the parliament: PDI-P, Golkar, PKS and Gerindra. On two days they were trained on "Narrative & Dynamics of Female Leadership", "Emotional Intelligence & Self-Awareness", "Political Communication", "Policy Analysis - Decision Making Based on Evidence" and "Public Finance and Budgeting". The gained knowledge and skills should help the female parliamentarians to make their parliamentary work more competent and efficient and thus to further improve their political career opportunities.
