In 2011, Vital Voices and Bank of America came together to develop a signature partnership to accelerate women’s leadership development throughout the world. The Global Ambassadors Program connects extraordinary women leaders for mentorship opportunities.
In each country that hosts a Global Ambassador Program, we bring together Global Ambassadors (mentors) to participate in a week-long program that includes leadership development trainings, one-on-one and group mentoring sessions with women leaders (mentees) from around the world who are at a tipping point in terms of their professional, business and leadership paths.
The Global Ambassadors Program in Johannesburg, South Africa will take place from 9th to 13th March 2015, and will focus on addressing the ongoing needs and challenges facing women leaders from sub-Saharan Africa countries involved in HIV/AIDS support activity through the business, NGO and social enterprise sectors, through structured dialogues, trainings and mentoring sessions.
Attached herewith is an overview of the GAP South Africa program together with the Mentee selection criteria. The Call for Applications for Mentees is an online process at this link
Note that applications are due Monday 5th January 2015.
