The flagship program of the EJS Center, the Amujae Initiative’s objective is to inspire and prepare women to unapologetically take up roles and excel in the highest echelons of public leadership, and to bring other women along.
The EJS Center Data Hub for Women’s Leadership in Public Governance is the first data tool dedicated to tracking women’s public leadership in Africa. The goal is to harness the power of data to inform advocacy and policymaking and advance women’s representation in public governance.
Our “Spotlight a COVID-19 Heroine” initiative highlights African women who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and dedication to their communities through their COVID-19 response efforts. Join us in recognizing and celebrating these inspiring women!
African women remain underrepresented in leadership across the public and private sectors. There are just five women serving as Prime Ministers and two serving as Presidents across the continent. Only one out of every four members of parliament is a woman. And women remain significantly outnumbered in the top ranks of African businesses.
