Women receive leadership training

The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) Department of the U.S hosted more than 40 Fulbright students from sub-Saharan African countries at a leadership and re-entry seminar at the University of Texas, Austin from 10 to 15 April.
The seminar provided emerging women leaders from sub-Saharan Africa studying at U.S. colleges and universities with leadership training.
Of the 40 participants, four are from Namibia:  Anna Liisa Ihuhwa, studying Applied Linguistics at Old Dominion University in Virginia; Kaunapawa Nangula, Second Language Learning student at Saint Michael’s College in Vermont; Hafeni Hamakali, studying Teaching English as a Foreign Language at California State University in Los Angeles and Muvari Tjiurutue, a student in Evolutionary Biology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
The first part of the five-day seminar and workshop focused on emerging women leaders. The female participants networked with U.S women leaders in business, academia, the non-profit sector and government, and explored Austin’s culture through keynote speeches, panel discussions and site visits to local organisations.
