The Effective Female Leadership Programme was started by Leading Edge and Greenfolk Management Consultants in 2017, as a means of empowering emerging Namibian female leaders to confidently and effectively step up and stand out in their leadership

The programme is held annually in the month of June, and features 3 essential components which ultimately provide for an engaging and inspiring learning experience for all who participate. These components include:

(1) A Leadership Dinner and Dialogue, which brings leaders together for an evening of dialogue on leadership. Open to men and women, the topics chosen for the dialogue center on women’s leadership, with keynote addresses by leading Namibian and African women leaders.

(2) A 3-day EFL Masterclass, packed with engaging lessons, dialogues and activities to shape and empower emerging female leaders.

In 2018, Old Mutual Namibia came on board as a 3-year partner of the EFL Programme, incorporating the programme into the annual Old Mutual Women’s Summit, and scaling up both the scope and the impact of its offerings. The programme has featured African game-changers including HR guru Shirley Zinn (2017), global entrepreneur Bethlehem Tilahun Alemu (2018), and agripreneur Monica Musonda (2019).

In 2020, given the global Covid-19 pandemic, the Summit went virtual, and featured renowned global economist and bestselling author Dr. Dambisa Moyo.
