Visiting Women’s Executive Exchange Program (VWEEP)

VWEEP October 2016

The Visiting Women Executive Exchange Program (VWEEP) is a unique leadership development program designed especially for women of the African Diaspora and for women leaders based in Africa or whose work deals with Africa. The program addresses the most challenging professional step for women – the leap to top management. Over one week, senior women managers from Africa and across the globe are prepared for transformational C-suite, board room, cabinet and university leadership through intensive instruction in critical skills needed to think strategically, make better decisions, grow organizations and lead diverse teams in a 21st Century environment.If you are a woman manager interested in obtaining valuable leadership skills training from Ivy League professors while cultivating a strong international network with rising stars and C-suite women executives from around the world, then the VWEEP program is for you!VWEEP is a part of Yale’s School of Management Partner Program »»


Attending the 2016 VWEEP was one of the best decisions that I have made in terms of my personal development. The programme was so insightful! I particularly loved the diversity of the participants who all senior and have had fabulous experiences in their countries. The session on the role of women leaders in Africa was excellent! I was fascinated by the progress on the United Nations SDG’s, particularly women empowerment issues and their forward-looking plan. The biggest take from this presentation for me was ‘what space can we create for young girls to grow?’ The speakers were well prepared and covered their topics well. The topics were also relevant to the current business environment and it was fascinating to see the similarities of issues amongst the countries represented. I would like to commend Career Nation for putting this excellent programme together and for the meticulous planning involved. I would definitely recommend the Programme to other women!

My VWEEP experience was awesome. I was amazed at the information and learning I took away. You made this program relevant to us back home and realize we can contribute as leaders wherever we are. I was particularly excited with Ambassador Robin Sander’s presentation, who seems to know more about African countries. I would highly recommend the Programme to other women executives!
