The Young African Women In Leadership (YAWIL) programme is aimed at millennials wishing to develop leadership competencies and skills for the digital age.  YAWIL adopts the same format as AWIL with a special focus on Building Leadership In The Digital Age.

Aside from the familiar leadership topics delivered under the AWIL programme, we also focus on workshop topics such as: innovation, service design and launch and cyber security.  Whether you intend leading in a digital business or not you need to be aware of how your competitors and those in digital businesses can disrupt your well thought through business ideas.

Participants will also benefit from interacting with and learning from International and local experts. These are individuals who have successfully launched multi-million dollar businesses from startup; many in the digital arena.
