Are you ready to take up space?

Girleada knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. According to UN Women only 24.3% of all national parliamentarians were women as of February 2019. The 2020 Fortune 500 magazine revealed that women held 7.4 percent of Fortune 500 CEO roles. At present, Sahle-Work Zewde is the the only female President out of the 54 Presidents in Africa.

The bottomline is : Every single day, women walk bravely into leadership spaces where there are few or no women and that is why we ultimately decided to launch Girleada.

We're pursuing authentic leadership!

What We Do

Girleada is a leadership development  and training non-governmental organisation that provides adolescent girls and young womxn with the skill set and courage to pursue authentic leadership.

There are various entities that provide leadership training however many of them are expensive and thus inaccessible i.e. business schools, international conferences and membership based organisations. Secondly, most of them do not cater for youths and are administered by company HR departments and require individuals to have vast amounts of leadership/management experience before being accepted.

We work in tandem with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 5, gender equality. The organisation was founded in 2020 and is run by a dedicated remote team in South Africa. Our main program, Lead(her)ship, will have its first cohort in 2021.

The organisation is founded on the following three pillars:
