Senior Female Police Commanders preliminary course begins in Addis Ababa

Fifty senior female police officers are in Addis Ababa this week for a first of its kind preparatory course that will build a fast-track pipeline for the nominations of women to advance in policing at a leadership level. This course will prepare female commanders for the recruitment process for senior-level police positions in peace support operations for both the United Nations and the African Union. 

The training is taking place in Addis Ababa from 4-8 December, 2017 and has been jointly organized by the United Nations and the African Union with the support of the Government of Canada and other partners.
