The Language, Gender and Leadership Network, funded by the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), will enhance economic development and the welfare of women and girls by analysing the key challenges facing them to become a successful generation of leaders in businesses and politics in Africa and beyond.

Our growing Network provides innovative opportunities for academics, politicians, policy makers, NGOs, charities and other stakeholders to come together to focus on the core communicative skills required to succeed as leaders in businesses and politics, through a focus on the power of narrative as an empowerment device.
