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.
So far, 42 Guyanese women entrepreneurs have participated in the programme, with a further 50 set to take part later this year.
Here are the impacts we’ve seen so far:
90% of participants reported better understanding of the status of women’s leadership globally and in Guyana.
100% of participants reported a change in their approach to their personal life.
97% of participants increased their knowledge of leadership skills.
