2024 Milead Fellows Program: For Emerging African Women Leaders

Are You An Exceptional Young African Female Leader, Determined To Make A Difference? The 2024 Milead Fellows Program Is Your Chance To Shine!

About The Milead Fellows Program

The MILEAD Fellows Program is a bold and paradigm-shifting initiative committed to the long-term leadership development of promising young leaders selected as Fellows. 

Fellows benefit from a combination of training, experiential learning, and mentoring crafted to build knowledge and skills, strengthen networks, and facilitate a supportive ecosystem of women’s leadership on critical issues. 

In addition, the program links determined young women with influential and seasoned African leaders who are committed to inspiring and empowering the next generation. Most importantly, Fellows benefit from lifelong solidarity and support through the MILEAD Network.

 One of the distinguishing features of our program is the deliberate integration of community service into the yearlong training. Each Fellow will initiate and lead a community change (MiCHANGE) project on a critical issue of importance to their community or African women as a whole
