The Women Leadership Academy - Empowering Women in Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs)
We are pleased to welcome you to the 2017 AFROSAI Women Leadership Academy (WLA).
The WLA is organised jointly by the African Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions (AFROSAI) and the Good Financial Governance (GFG) in Africa programme. The GFG in Africa programme is implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and the European Union.
The WLA enables ambitious women to get into decision-making and leadership positions and to drive the implementation of strategic reform projects in their respective SAIs.
It is a 8-month programme for selected motivated and qualified female leaders of African SAIs. Women who take part in the academy are more than just participants. They are drivers of change. The objective is to strengthen their skills in strategic thinking and change management so that they can achieve and sustain extraordinary outcomes.
The programme combines experiential learning during three workshops in Senegal (September 2017), Europe (December 2018), and South Africa (April 2018) with individual leadership coaching and online engagements. Additionally, each participant implements a strategic reform project in her SAI.
To create a network of female SAI leaders and accompany you, the participants, in your leadership journey, this platform has been designed as an integral part of the WLA. We invite you to make use of it and to share with and learn from your peers.
