Leadership Program for Ghanaian Women Leaders in Civil Society

NYU Wagner's Research Center for Leadership in Action and Fundación Mujeres por África are now accepting applications for the Ghanaian Women’s Social Leadership Program.

  • Program training, lodging and travel expenses covered by the program;
  • A network of dynamic women leaders in Ghanaian civil society; and
