Ghanaian Women's Social Leadership Program

The Ghanaian Women’s Social Leadership Program aims to provide a committed group of Ghanaian women in mid-level positions within civil society organizations with the skills and support needed to lead transformational change in their communities and society at large.

Across Ghana’s strong and vibrant civil society, women are making invaluable contributing to their country’s social, economic, and political growth. However, women’s contributions  are often underrepresented, and many lack access to positions of higher authority. The Ghanaian Women’s Social Leadership Program offers an opportunity for mid-career women to grow as leaders , prepare themselves to take on new leadership roles and tackle pressing issues in their communities.

The program is part of Ghana Wins!, a partnership-driven program  delivered by New York University, with support from Fundación Mujeres Por África, and Banco Santander, and the University of Ghana. Ghana Wins! aims to strengthen the capacity of Ghanaian women as leaders in the key sectors of healthcare, education and civil society.

The application process is currently open. The deadline for the 2014-2015 program has been extended to 11:59 EST on Sunday August 31st, 2014.
