AWC Leadership Development Center

AWC Leadership Development Centre

The AWC Leadership Development Centre for Women and Girls provides a platform for highly skilled international resource persons who are driving change across various fields to provide training and mentorship for African Women and Girls living in under-resourced communities thereby enabling them to aspire for excellence and leadership while helping them realize their full potentials. The Center achieves this by running a full circle of practical and theoretical impartation which begins with a workshop that enables mentors meet physically with their mentees via group and individual trainings. During the workshop, resource persons will work with the mentees to develop individual work plans that will be implemented over a six-month period in the mentees’ communities. Both parties remain in touch via online and physical platforms during this period.

The AWC Leadership Development Centre for Women and Girls is an Initiative of the Africa Women Conference to raise female community leaders in every African society who understand the importance and are committed to ensuring the sustainable development of their communities.

The Leadership Development Centre equips young women and girls with skills required to take up leadership roles through personal and career growth.

After six months the mentees performances are evaluated through a peer review mechanism, the best performing leaders in various sectors are then selected and empowered to do more for their communities. The AWC Leadership Development Centre will be officially inaugurated on 30th September 2019 at the Cyprian Ekwensi Centre for Arts and Culture, Area 10 Garki Abuja.
Beneficiaries of the first Leadership Development Cohort will be drawn for women and girls from various local communities in Africa. The AWC Leadership Development Centre for Women and Girls solicits the support of corporate organizations and individuals to ensure that its aims are realized and the society benefits for good.
