Are you a professional woman seeking to deepen your feet into public leadership and retain your voice and identity in the public space? 

Here is a specially packaged program to help you achieve your dream. 

👌 Background 

The 20th century was defined by human rights struggles. The 21st century will be defined by the delivery of equal rights for women in the public space. In all spheres of society, leadership appears to have a certain image: the male image. Perhaps that explains why in his book Leadership is Male (1988), David Pawson posits that “Patriarchal society is a reflection of divine fatherhood”.  However, Joan Martin (1996) in her own book Is Leadership Male? interrogates Pawson’s assertion. The debate is on.

The 21st century is the century of Women’s participation in the public space. The reasons are many. For instance, participation of women in political leadership is so crucial towards the attainment of the UN Social Development Goals – SDGs. Women bring many good things to public leadership. They bring intellect, loyalty, humaneness, managerial and multi-tasking skills to bear on political leadership.

Unfortunately, women have been kept behind in the public leadership for too long. To reverse the trend, it is imperative women take responsibility for their self-development. 

A woman should take her place in public leadership!
