Eighteen women leaders from around the globe have arrived in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada for a seven-week intensive women’s leadership program at Coady International Institute’s International Centre for Women’s Leadership.

Global Change Leaders is a scholarship program where women from developing countries will strengthen their leadership capacities to contribute to innovation and change in their organizations and communities.

My experience at Coady has been eye-opening as a woman leader. I have been inspired to step out and voice issues that affect children and women in my country. Through my learning and experience at Coady, I am a better leader to make a significant and lasting change in my country and beyond.
