In the first phase of the project we chose the British institution Imperial College as a collaborating partner, responsible for delivering a leadership training program. Thanks to the training program, the 25 participating women professors strengthened their leadership skills through 10 live virtual sessions taught by Imperial College professors, leaders in Authentic leadership. The course took place over 5 weeks and the content of the program allowed the women to explore their leadership skills, their goals and learn how to adopt the coaching mindset through constructive feedback.
Following the success of the first phase of the project, the Women for Africa Foundation and Banco Santander decided to renew their partnership and launched the second phase of the project in 2023, based on the results and recommendations made by the participants. In this second phase, the academic institution chosen to deliver the leadership training program is Cranfield University, as it presented a training proposal that was very well adapted to the needs of the Nigerian professors and the objectives of the Foundation.
