Every other day the letter is from the Editor. This time around we would like to congratulate Josephine Kanengoni, the founding editor of Divas Inc Magazine for being part of the 2018 YALI Mandela Washington Fellowship. The YALI (Young African Leaders Initiative) program empowers young African leaders through academic coursework, leadership training, mentoring, networking, professional opportunities and local community engagement. Since 2014, the U.S. Department of State has brought 3,000 young leaders from across sub-Saharan Africa to the United States to develop their leadership skills and foster connections and collaborations with U.S. professionals. The Fellows that are selected to participate have established records of accomplishment in promoting innovation and positive change in their organizations, institutions, communities, and countries.
It makes us proud as the team to have a leader who continuously takes initiative to improve her skills as well as to impart knowledge all the time. This year she is part of the 25 fellows from 20 different African countries who will be hosted by the University of Iowa in the USA from the 20th of June to the 29th of July 2018.
Have a great learning and networking experience, have fun too. Fly our flag high, our Divas Inc Brand and rock ‘this scarf’ like a diva!!!
