Transformative Spaces

Enabling Authentic Female Leadership through Self Transformation. The Case of AWiB

By Billene Seyoum Woldeyes

Transformative Spaces explores the principles of authentic leadership and how it can be developed among urban Ethiopian women to affect social change. Set within a context that is not conducive to women's accelerated climb up the positional ladder, the book argues that transformative spaces are powerful platforms enabling women to challenge cultural factors that impede their leadership potential. Through a personal story of self-transformation, weaved in with other Ethiopian women's experiences with one such transformative space - the Association of Women in Business (AWiB) - the book proposes that such spaces are important in initiating self-transformation.
