Momentum Leadership Programme is made up of three components.
Interactive sessions given by experienced moderators. The sessions involve experiential learning, lively discussions, short videos, case studies and Q&A focused on specific leadership qualities.
Social impact empowers each participant to make a positive impact in the community. Each participant can choose which charity she would like to work with.
With the help of a mentor each participant sets personal goals based on Leader Lab to develop key leadership skills in their own lives.
Each person has what it takes to be someone great. Momentum Leadership helps young women to unlock the potential that lies within them. It creates the environment for each participant to discover her capacity and gives her the tools to become her personal best.
We are committed to help young women aspire to have a deep, positive and lasting impact on people, the work place and society; to inspire leaders to work with a spirit of service and integrity.
Our mission is articulated in the programme’s content and carried out by young professionals who want to support young women in reaching their potential.
