It’s official, I am a human rights consultant!
Today I completed my consultancy training at the US Institute of Diplomacy and Human Rights and I feel so energized about what’s to come in the New Year! I had been planning on taking this course for a long time and today was literally my first opportunity. I am so happy that I set aside time to focus on my passion of human rights advocacy and being able to solidify my commitment to this cause and field of work even further.
A great deal of human rights education may take place in the real world, but concerted training about the principles and main human rights resources are integral components of the subject matter. Considering the highly abstract but at the same time concrete nature of human rights, one can comprehend why understanding the theory can be very important for the practice.
The USIDHR training was effective, concise, and highlighted the most important tidbits of information related to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. I am looking forward to utilizing my new certification to further champion the cause of human rights globally.
