Our leadership programme is the first step of and an indispensable component of our feminist movement building toolkit, creating opportunities for awakening feminist consciousness and organizing based on solidarity premised on shared values and issues. Through the African Women’s Leadership Institute (AWLI), AMwA contributes to the growth and strengthening of the feminist movement on the continent by raising the political consciousness of change-makers, including young feminists, gender justice advocates, women’s rights activists, and civil and political leaders who are provided with the tools, networks and resources to disrupt the status quo in their spheres of influence. We see feminist leadership development as a continuous growth process requiring nurturing through community support and modelling feminist leadership principles. We, therefore, use mentoring and coaching as tools of continuous development and accountability.
