INSEAD & WIA

With locations in Europe (France), Asia (Singapore), the Middle East (Abu Dhabi), and now North America (San Francisco), INSEAD, remains world’s leading and largest graduate business schools. INSEAD brings together people, cultures and ideas to develop responsible leaders who transform business and society.

INSEAD’s research, teaching and partnerships reflect this global perspective and cultural diversity. INSEAD also aims to be a key player in the space of developing gender balance in leadership. 

INSEAD Gender Initiative has been set up to develop the next generation of female and male leaders equipped to address gender balance throughout their careers.

INSEAD has been working with Women In Africa since 2018 to get closer to female business leaders of tomorrow and show them what they can offer, to contribute to the development of the continent. 

“We are proud of the many women of INSEAD who are using their talents to define their purpose and help shape a better world “

“As the first Ghanaian woman to lead a multinational telecommunications company, I understand the transformative power diversity brings to professional success. This is why I co-founded the Executive Women Network: to inspire, support and empower African women executives to succeed in their careers and create a more equitable world.”
