Akili Dada is an international award-winning leadership incubator cultivating transformative leadership in a generation of young African women.
Our leadership development curriculum creates the foundation on which young women ages 13-35 acquire the necessary skills to access key decision-making roles and leadership positions. By selecting from, and building the capacity of some of Africa’s most innovative young women, we are meeting the urgent need for both more African women in leadership, as well as the overall need for creative leadership that holds justice at its core.
Our vision is a world in which African women leaders are actively participating in key decision-making processes across sectors. Our mission is to nurture transformative leadership in girls and young women from underprivileged backgrounds to meet the urgent need for more African women in leadership.
