Announcing the 2019 AWARD Leadership Series: Building Proficient Leaders for Agricultural Development

African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD) invests in scientists, research institutions and agribusinesses to lead and deliver gender-responsive agricultural innovations. In this mission, we recognize that effective leadership and management in agricultural development organizations are critical. In response, AWARD Training has designed training courses, under its leadership series, tailored to facilitate transformative learning on proficient leadership.  

The AWARD leadership series is designed for middle to senior-level male and female managers who want to strengthen their leadership skills and build the core competencies required to transform and influence positive change in agricultural research and development. These learning experiences equip participants with skills to manage themselves, leverage diversity for good research results and lead teams effectively. They are designed to help participants gain valuable insight into leadership communication, conflict management, team building, negotiation, and decision-making skills consequently increasing their visibility and influence in their organizations.
