WomenLead in Africa: A Regional Women’s Leadership Workshop
November 18 - 22, 2019
WomenLead in Africa will inspire women’s awareness of their own leadership abilities, both existing and desired; introduce new tools, knowledge, and skills to strengthen organizational and management systems and team effectiveness; and promote greater self-confidence and clarity of career goals and personal aspirations.
Core leadership topics covered in this one-week workshop include: personal and professional leadership, confidence, emotional intelligence, situational leadership, learning styles, managing teams, negotiation skills, public speaking, and ethical leadership. Participants will also expand and strengthen their professional networks in country and regionally.
The workshop provides a dynamic and supportive space for women to learn, share, practice new skills, and receive feedback from peers. The team of experienced and globally recognized trainers creates an encouraging, safe, and participatory learning environment for personal reflection, strategy and skill development, and the exchange of best practices and experiences.
WomenLead in Africa is for early to mid-career women working in any technical area (e.g. health, education, gender, rights, economic empowerment, etc.) or institutional sector (e.g. civil society, government, private sector, or political body) who meet the following basic criteria:
