INTRODUCTION


The Women in Power Programme (WIPP) is a partnered initiative by the Black Management Forum (BMF) and DUKE Corporate Education (DUKE CE). WIPP is designed to provide participants the opportunity to enhance their value-based leadership skills through exposing them to new ways of leading and achieving a higher level of professional performance. This three- module  short learning programme addresses the challenges that women executives face in their management and leadership roles and provides practical insights, tools, frameworks, and leadership competencies for them to increase their leadership impact and create lasting personal and professional change.

Although the certification of completion received by successful candidates at the end of the programme may not be used for formal accreditation, it does serve as the best preparation for other courses offered by DUKE CE.
