    Programme overview

    International organizations, gender equality and leadership in thought and action are tightly interwoven. The aim underpinning the Leadership, Women and the UN programme is to promote the expansion and renewal of prevalent paradigms of leadership and ensure a more gender balanced workplace across and beyond the UN system.

    The programme is designed around the needs of highly experienced women professionals (for UN officials: P4-P5 levels). It unfolds as a journey to prepare a community of leaders to thoughtfully work through the challenges and opportunities for women in leadership roles and promote the leadership culture that is paramount to implement a transformational plan of action to achieve peace and prosperity for the world’s people and our planet. 

    By attending the programme you will be exploring different leadership approaches and their situational application, the gender and cultural dimensions of leadership, dynamics of power, influence and negotiation and deeper personal-professional coherence and self-awareness to develop a set of skills and competencies for transformative and charismatic leadership.

    Furthermore, the programme will allow you to gain direct insights into the leadership reflections of senior UN leaders and join a lively community of alumnae to exchange and learn from each other’s experiences.
