African Center of Excellence for Women’s Leadership (ACE)
The African Center of Excellence for Women’s Leadership (ACE) aims to develop the capabilities of four women-led organizations in East Africa to be centers of excellence in the delivery of leadership development programs, research and knowledge generation on reproductive health, economic empowerment and girls’ education.
The ACE for Women’s Leadership Program responds to an articulated need by women across the continent for a strategic leadership development program and for a stronger and more coordinated effort to help women advocate for issues that most concern them.
The four organizations are intended to serve as places where women can come together for leadership training, strategizing, researching and sharing of best practices across the region.
Previous projects included the IIE Center for Women's Leadership Initiatives (CWLI).
