Developing Leadership Capacity

AWARD is explicitly designed to help African women in agricultural science increase their visibility and to empower them to serve as champions of rural women. Through AWARD's tailored leadership training, fellows learn to navigate organizational gender issues, leverage team talents, manage conflict, and use influence appropriately.


AWARD Fellows with post-bachelor's degrees attend the AWARD Leadership Skills Course; those with post-master's or post-doctoral degrees attend the AWARD Women's Leadership and Management Course. Each fellow also practices her leadership skills by organizing a role-modeling event designed to inspire girls and young women to consider careers in agricultural science.
