AWARD, as CGIAR’s preferred service provider, continues to offer leadership series to individuals from research institutions, international organizations, and academic institutions across Africa. To date, over 500 women have had the opportunity to improve their leadership and negotiations skills through these leadership series. Recognizing that the management of collaborations and partnerships is essential to good leadership, and due to demand, we opened up the courses to men and women working with various institutions, including National Agricultural Research Systems (NARs), universities, the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), the World Bank, the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), among others.
Research findings on the impact of these courses show that leadership transformations came about from a “breakthrough” during the course that led to sustained post-course behavioral change, resulting in the participants overcoming earlier leadership dilemmas. We continue to receive numerous inquiries about the courses from interested participants, and AWARD is committed to provide these services to organizations, and institutions across Africa.
