Minerva Seeking Applicants for Women Leading the Way

The Minerva Foundation is seeking applicants from all across British Columbia for Women Leading the Way (WLW) - an exciting and innovative three-year pilot program that will take women who want to lead through a part-time, year-long, advanced leadership development training program, beginning in January 2011.  The project will involve hundreds of individuals, organizations and communities throughout BC and beyond. Participant applications are due by September 15th.

Women Leading the Way is a distinct, hands-on training program that will encourage women to move to the next stage in their leadership journey by offering them access to top level mentors and advisors, the tools and techniques to develop their leadership abilities, key strategies to move into positions of greater influence and responsibility, and hands-on leadership experience on a project involving political, business, or social change.
WLW's initial pilot program will have two intakes, with each cohort accepting up to 25 women. The first six months involves classroom/on-line training and the following six months involves applying these leadership skills to a specific project, with the help of a team of mentors. The project will culminate in a Global/National Conference in March 2013, where lessons learned from this pilot project, and models for the future, will be shared with agencies, organizations, communities and social change agents from around the globe through a variety of social media tools.
