Capacity development in leadership and innovation skills of women researchers
During the Inception and Design Phase of the Young Arab Women Scientists Leadership Program - Tamkeen, ICBA will carry out a content analysis of leadership and innovation modules of agricultural science programs and a needs assessment of practicing women scientists in the region. After reviewing the needs of women scientists in the context of strengths and challenges in current programs, ICBA will create a new program targeting young Arab women scientists, which aims to develop their leadership and innovation skills. While the results of the needs assessment will be a driving force for this inception phase, perspectives of gender and Arab culture will be taken into consideration when designing the proposed program to ensure that it meets the needs of women scientists and is also culturally appropriate to the young Arab women who will participate in the program. At the conclusion of the inception phase, ICBA will propose a full program designed on the basis of the evidence and analysis gathered during this phase.
