The WIN Leadership Accelerator is targeted at mid to senior level editors and journalists. Participants must have two to three years of experience managing people or processes and be working in the media sector – print or digital newspapers, radio and, in some cases, broadcast.

  1. This is indeed a great opportunity especially for women in leadership levels,looking forward to be part of this exciting journey

  2. I am a WIN representative on AMARC Africa Board….trying to connect with anyone part of the organising team.

  3. Dommage pour moi. Mon pays, le Burkina Faso, n’est pas pris en compte dans cette belle opportunité dont j’ai besoin pour donner un autre élan à ma carrière professionnelle 😤😤

  4. I would have loved to take part in the mentorship programme as a Lesotho citizen who manages interns in the newspaper that I am working for as a senior journalist.

    If possible please also give the same chance to the media in Lesotho.

  5. This is great and encouraging. May I know if this program is being offered at a charge or is it for free. If it at a charge, how much is it per program or course?
