Women for Afrika and the Leadership Circle

Women for Afrika coordinates and hosts the Woman Within Weekends and Workshops in South Africa, plus other Women for Afrika workshops and events. Our focus is on connection and developing women in our communities with their personal growth and to further their Woman Within Training after the Weekend. We are thrilled to say we have our own Team Leader with a new Team Leader in Training, and many women at various levels on the Facilitator in Training Track (FIT) and our very own Facilitators (FAC).

The Leadership circle is a group of volunteers, who have stepped up to make this possible. We have taken on specific coordination roles and duties and sign a contract of commitment for 2 years, being responsible for our roles and responsibilities as a specific coordinator to ensure the Women for Afrika continues to operate and bringing the Weekends and Workshops to South Africa each year.  We are also responsible for the integrity, consistency, and sustainability, both financially and organisationally of Women for Afrika and Woman Within Weekends & Workshops in South Africa.

Any woman who has completed her weekend is welcome to step up into leadership and bring her unique offerings and commitment to growing this community.

The look and feel of leadership circle works as a flat a equal model, where each one of us is responsible and accountable to the group as a whole for the role we take on as a coordinator.  Not one role is more important than the other. This we believe is more inline with the development of an empowered community... giving women the space to show up.

We support each other in our roles, but are ultimately accountable for implementing what is required from our portfolios.  We are a circle of committed women, which assumes accountability and gives and receives encouragement, guidance and support so that each woman is empowered within the group to reach her goals.

The Leadership circle consists of the following Portfolios:

  • Staffing
  • Registrations
  • Weekends & Workshops Coordinator
  • Paperwork - Support to Weekend Coordinator
  • Open Circles
  • Circle Training Coordinator
  • Existing Circles
  • Mixed Gender Circles
  • FIT / FAC Coordinator
  • Marketing
  • Finance

The leadership circle works within the policies, guidelines and procedures set out by WWI and liaise directly with WWI regarding the implementation of the Weekend and Workshops. We are bound by policies, procedures, guidelines, processes on the weekend and an International Hosting agreement.
