Offer: Global Change Leaders: Certificate Program for Emerging Women Leaders from the Global South
Global Change Leaders program is a new 20-week certificate program that will be offered by the International Centre for Women’s Leadership at the Coady International Institute in Nova Scotia, Canada. The program has received financial support of donors, partners and the Government of Canada through the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).
The Global Change Leaders program is targeted at emerging women leaders from the global south who are working in the development field. These are women who have at least two years of demonstrated leadership qualities and are outstanding in the work that they do in their organizations and communities. They have tremendous potential to develop into strong leaders and to have great impact through the development work they are doing. The 20-week program will offer them an opportunity to strengthen and enhance their leadership skills through a 10-week leadership development program facilitated by experienced faculty at the Coady International Institute, a 10-week placement in an international organization aligned with their work, and an opportunity to receive mentoring from selected established women leaders from around the world. On-campus education will begin in January, 2012. The program will provide financial support to selected participants.Coady International Institute
