I would like to ask you one very important question. What is the real meaning of empowerment? When are women really empowered? Is it just about having personal choice and respect in personal and professional life? Or is it something more? To answer this question, we have to understand the qualities women have that help her become a successful leader.
Psychologically speaking women have certain qualities, in 2005, a year-long study conducted by Caliper, a Princeton, New Jersey – based management consulting firm, and Aurora, a London – based organization that advances women, identified a number of characteristics that distinguish women leaders from men when it comes to qualities of leadership:
Women have been found to have better empathy, sensitivity, caring and with ability to understand other people and their emotions.Women have been found to have extremely good communication skills, interpersonal skills and flexibility amongst others.
WAELE/ARCELFA has embarked on her 2nd decade of African women emancipation. WAELE/ARCELFA will intensify on women Economic & Leadership Empowerment, Reproductive Health & Rights, as well as Peace & Conflict Resolutions, through Summit and Town hall meetings in conflicts & war torn countries in Africa.
Please join me in working towards a peaceful & prosperous Africa.
It is my pleasure to welcome you to WAELE/ARCELFA website.
Thank You, God Bless
