AWDF’s leadership development and coaching programme is aimed at building a cadre of African women leaders with feminist consciousness to promote women and girls’ rights in Africa. This programme targets young African women leaders because they represent our future, and deserve our investment in their human capacity development to enable them engage effectively as our leaders on women’s rights issues.
This 6th CEO forum, like previous years, is the first event of the intensive nine-month leadership coaching project. The forum is a unique space to inspire and encourage leaders to focus their minds on the coaching process and activities and embrace the new changes that will come from this experience for the benefit of their organisations and communities. The forum is also a space where leaders for the first time meet and interact with coaches assigned to them, engage and network with stakeholders on the project, question and agree on strategies on the way forward. As leaders embark on this important journey, we encourage them to be bold, courageous, conscious, and to take care of self and community and stand in solidarity with fellow women and girls.
