Alumna Supporting Inclusive Leadership Development and Collaboration in Africa

PhD in Leadership and Change alumna Dr. Shelley Chapman was recently appointed Consultant for Leadership Development and Theological Education for Africa by World Gospel Mission (WGM). After completing two years as Academic Dean of West Africa Theological Seminary (a school of 700 students) in Lagos, Nigeria, she relocated to Nairobi, Kenya, her new home base, from which she will travel to do consulting and part-time teaching of leadership studies at universities and seminaries throughout the continent. Of particular note is a new initiative she developed in collaboration with WGM, the “Leadership Development for Africa Program”, which provides scholarships and mentoring for emerging African leaders (especially for women) in the professions. The goal is to invest “long and deep” in individual students, and thereby to contribute to their transformation as leaders and as architects of a society celebrating and supporting a more inclusive, collaborative approach to governance and engagement on behalf of the greater good.
