Twelve women leaders from six African countries, including government ministers, parliamentarians, and other senior officials from Ethiopia, Liberia, Senegal, Tanzania, Tunisia, and Uganda, participated in the second annual Leadership Forum for Strategic Impact in April. At meetings held both at Yale and in Washington, D.C., participants discussed and debated key issues women in leadership face around the world.

The forum aims to enhance the knowledge and skills of senior African women leaders who already have attained important positions within their nations’ governments, and to build a network across Africa to further amplify the women’s effectiveness and influence. It is supported by the Women for Africa Foundation through Banco Santander, and is sponsored by the Brady-Johnson Program in Grand Strategy and the Office of International Affairs at Yale.
