Connect across the Commonwealth: suggested copy for internal communications
As you may be aware [insert name of your organisation] is a member of the Commonwealth Forum of National Human Rights Institutions (CFNHRI). To encourage networking and knowledge-sharing across the Commonwealth, CFNHRI is trialling a scheme to match employees of CFNHRI member organisations with colleagues in other countries.
The ‘Connect across the Commonwealth’ scheme is open to staff members at all levels as well as to board members/commissioners. Participants will be matched with a colleague who is working in a similar area at another CFNHRI member organisation for an informal one-to-one video meeting to discuss their respective areas of work.
Participation in the scheme will allow you to share knowledge with a colleague in another country and understand more about how human rights are upheld in different jurisdictions.
Find out more about Connect across the Commonwealth and apply to take part on the CFNHRI website. Applications close on Friday 29 October.
