Road to Leadership in Guyana

Our Road to Leadership training supports women entrepreneurs in Guyana to thrive as leaders.

Guyana is transforming rapidly. It is one of the fastest growing economies in the world with a GDP growth rate of more than 20%. Much of this growth can be attributed to the strong entrepreneurial spirit of Guyanese women and the government’s commitment to supporting them.  

Guyana has a huge number of women owned businesses, and our research identified that women entrepreneurs in Guyana wanted to boost their leadership skills so that they can make the country better for other women. That’s where Road to Leadership comes in!

Our Road to Leadership programme guides participants through the leadership, communication and advocacy basics needed to grow as powerful changemakers through three online sessions. The training supports them to better lead and influence within their companies, with their stakeholders and beyond. 

We brought the programme to Guyana in 2023, adapted to the country’s unique context. 93 Guyanese women entrepreneurs have participated in it so far.
