March 11, 2016 (NEW YORK) – CareerNation, a leading provider of human resources for Africa and the United States, formed a partnership with the Yale School of Management to offer the firm’s Visiting Women’s Executive Exchange Program (VWEEP). The program will run September 12 through 15, 2016, at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. Designed exclusively for senior women executives in Africa and their US peers whose work focuses in Africa, it is the first of its kind offered at Yale and the first partnership between Yale and CareerNation.

“I am extremely pleased CareerNation is partnering with the Yale School of Management to offer this important program. As more women move into leadership roles in business in Africa, and more women globally take on assignments in Africa or related to Africa, it makes sense to bring them together to exchange ideas and form relationships that will benefit their careers and their respective organizations,” says Victor T. Madubuko, founder and CEO of CareerNation. “This is precisely what VWEEP will do, while at the same time imparting cutting-edge leadership skills, strategies and concepts from Yale’s distinguished faculty.” Molly Nagler, Associate Dean of the Yale School of Management’s Executive Programs noted “Our school is excited about CareerNation’s program because it will help professional women working in Africa, build mutual understanding and cultural ties, and prepare women to give their firms the competitive advantages associated with improved diversity among top management teams.”

Over VWEEP’s five days, participants will attend sessions on strategic thinking, growth strategies, team development, decision-making and communications, and leading change. Pre-program preparation will comprise case studies, a video lecture on corporate governance, and a leadership assessment to be discussed by an executive coach during the program. Participation is open to senior-level executives who meet the participant criteria. Corporations that do business in Africa are invited to sponsor and nominate candidates for participation.

CareerNation plans to extend the Visiting Women’s Executive Exchange Program at Yale to twice a year in 2017.
