Road to Leadership in Nigeria

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

With the support of our partners, the ExxonMobil Foundation and Enterprise Development Centre, we piloted our Road to Leadership programme in Nigeria in 2021.

Participants in the programme are guided 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. 

Around 30 women entrepreneurs in Nigeria participated in the programme’s pilot, which saw strong outcomes. In fact, 100% of Road to Leadership participants in Nigeria rated the training as ‘excellent’ in its first year. 

Road to Leadership’s impact globally: 

96% of participants increased self-awareness about their own leadership styles. 

95% increased awareness of how advocacy can be relevant to address barriers they face as entrepreneurs. 

91% increased their confidence to promote and pitch their business. 

While Road to Leadership is no longer delivered in Nigeria, the outcomes from this pilot fed into the development of the programme as a whole, and its robust ongoing delivery in other countries including South Africa and Kenya.
