Moremi Initiative for Women’s Leadership in Africa identifies 25 of Africa’s most outstanding emerging women leaders. The MILEAD Fellows Program is a long-term leadership development program designed to identify, develop, and promote emerging young African women leaders to attain and thrive in leadership in their community and Africa as a whole.
The program targets dynamic young women interested in developing transformational leadership skills that help them address issues facing women and girls across communities in Africa. The MILEAD program equips fellows with the world-class knowledge, skills, values and networks they need to succeed as 21st century women leaders. Applications are invited from young African women between 19 – 25 years of age, living in Africa and the Diaspora.
The MILEAD Fellowship will be awarded to young women who have exhibited leadership potential in their community, organization, and/or profession. To be eligible for the program, an applicant must be African, living on the continent or in the Diaspora; agree to participate in all required activities related to MILEAD – beginning with a three-week residential summer institute in Ghana; and commit to a community change project. Specific requirements of the program and related dates are outlined in the application package.
