WinLEAD – Strengthening Women Leadership
WinLEAD, supported by the Unniti Foundation, aims at building capacities of women in leadership position in civil society organizations with the intent to strengthen their skills for better skills, increased voice and influence in shaping organisations and their work. This capacity building efforts aims to reach out to a larger number of women in leadership position in NGOs to strengthen their skills for increased voice and influence in management and governance of organizations.
In this changing environment, leadership is viewed as the key organizational asset. Leaders will have to make sense of uncertainty and develop the skills and energy to manage unpredictable situations. In view of this, WinLEAD is aimed at assisting women NGO leaders to work out their own coherent concept of leadership and analyze what style or behaviour is most appropriate to the local culture and context. The program helps women NGO leaders deal with issues in management and governance by identifying the diverse roles they are expected to play and strategies they need adopt to cope with these diverse stakeholders and external pressures.
