"We are going to have a workshop where everybody will have a say and contribute to this policy, and how to make it really work, not only in political statements but in reality, what is being done, what needs to be done, so that the women of Tibetan community can contribute more."
The Tibetan Prime Minister-in-exile was among the participants at the event.
The workshop aims to foster leadership skills among Tibetan women and empowering the whole Tibetan community.
