Center for Women Leadership


(Leadership Crucible)

Women Leadership Center (WLC) is an initiative of the Catholic University of South Sudan (CUofSS). The University has developed a training module for WLC to respond to emerging and felt needs of women who aspire or are already in leadership. Such training need was established through a leadership gauge, also known as leadership audit, to accurately assess the leadership capabilities of individual women or their teams. This has enabled the Centre to come up with the best approach to intervene in support of women leadership.
