In facing the challenges of managing their careers or projects to maximize professional and personal goals, women often struggle with how to develop their own leadership styles and effectively enhance their power and status within an organization.  To reach the highest levels of management, it is essential for women to recognize, understand, and transform common professional challenges into career-building opportunities. Interestingly, most women are gradually assuming a leading role and pioneering a new commitment towards the realization of the sustainable development goals. It is therefore imperative that governments and institutions all over the world must consistently develop, encourage and sponsor gender leadership development programmes, policies, and strategies that seek to provide women and men with equal opportunities to showcase their inert abilities for the betterment of mankind.


It is in line with the above that Centre for Economic and Leadership Development (CELD), a global leading human capacity, gender empowerment and development-based organization that sees itself as a catalyst and thought leader in developing the theory and practice of leadership, social, educational and economic empowerment particularly in developing nations, have continually shown commitment in inspiring a multilateral action for gender emancipation and empowerment. This workshop is organized in strategic partnership with the National Organization of Black Elected Legislative (NOBEL) Women, USA and the African Leadership Magazine.
