WomenLift Health East African Leadership Program for Women Leaders 2023

The fully funded, 12-month East Africa Leadership Journey is designed to provide talented mid-career women leaders in health with a safe space to explore their authentic leadership through vulnerability and reflection; an inclusive and diverse network that fosters a strong sense of belonging; tools, and strategies for enhancing their voice, presence, and influence – all the while being supported by a powerful group of peers, mentors, and coaches.

The program imparts contextualized tools and frameworks to address the individual, organizational, and societal challenges that women leaders in global health face today.

About WomenLift Health
