Leadership program: women leaders for the world
Women Leaders for the World (WLW) is a truly remarkable experience designed for women leaders who dare to transform the future of their organizations, communities and the world. Global in scope, the program brings together women from multiple sectors including business, non-profits and academia. It is unique in its promise to equip participants with the support and development they need to implement a visionary project that aligns to one or more of the UN Millennium Development Goals. Participants are carefully selected for their potential to impact their communities from a pool of international nominees.
The curriculum is focused on:
- Sparking innovation, creativity and breakthrough thinking
- Launching women into global leadership roles
- Expanding women leaders' capability for creating networks, coalitions and alliances
WLW includes classroom presentations, small group and one-on-one coaching, pre- and post- reading, social networking and evaluation. Participants earn the Global Women’s Leadership Network Certificate and become part of the Graduate Community of transformative leaders around the world.
The next Women Leaders for the World class is tentatively planned for Spring 2014. If you are interested in learning more or applying for the leadership program, please send an email to GWLN at firstname.lastname@example.org.
