Women's Leadership Program
AIWA and the Women's Leadership Program
In 2015, a pilot Women’s Leadership Program was added to complement the Women's Entrepreneurship Program, a comprehensive business training program for women in Armenia funded by AIWA in partnership with the American University of Armenia (AUA).
The program was received with great enthusiasm, and participants have asked AUA to add a second level to the leadership courses, focusing on the same topics but offering more depth and breadth. In response, AUA and AIWA are offering a spring course. (The course begins April 10 and runs for one month, 3 nights a week.) Demand for the program is high; not all applicants can be accepted and courses are currently only held in Yerevan.
Our goal is to expand the Women's Leadership Program to two programs to allow more women to get involved and initiate pilot Women's Leadership Programs beyond Yerevan to areas such as Gyumri and Vanadzor.
