This manual is based on a Training of Trainers workshop “Nominating for Change: Strengthening Women’s Position in Political Parties” delivered in Jakarta, Indonesia in March 2003. The workshop was conceived as part of NDI Indonesia Women’s Program support for the Indonesian Political Women’s Caucus (KPPI: Kaukus Perempuan Politik Indonesia), a cross-party national organization that NDI has been working with since its inception. Both the upcoming national election in 2004 and the legislative push to have a 30% quota of women nominated by their respective parties presented opportunities for women to increase their political presence within parties.
