The pandemic disallowed us to host the 2nd edition of the circuit’s favorite tournament: BDC Shevolution, despite our best efforts. However, debate dreams and aspirations and our drive towards ensuring female empowerment and inclusiveness in the circuit will not halt. This time, we’re hosting the nations first ever online inter-school debate tournament for the girls of the Bangladesh debate circuit!
We invite you to attend the first edition of BDC Fempowerment- our endeavor to take women empowerment to a digital platform! This is also a tournament completely organised by women for women.
The top 10 speakers of BDC Fempowerment will get access to an exclusive training program constituting of specialized training sessions led by some of the circuit’s most revered debate heroes. Furthermore, they will also get access to National Camp, the debate boot camp- it’s the multi-step selection process that helps the nation determine the 5 individuals who will wave our flag in the World Cup of debating: The World School Debating Championship.
