In a bid to build and harness LGBT+ leadership as one of their strategic goals. Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG) developed a strategic plan dubbed “STEPPING UP” 2021-2025. In this regard the organization is carrying out various capacity strengthening workshops for leaders within the LGBT+ movement in Uganda.
With this program SMUG will match emergent Executive Directors from LGBT+ organizations with mentors who have had successful careers in similar leadership positions. They will further provide Management coaching to give participants an opportunity to learn, grow and solve specific problems facing them in their day-to-day work with the benefit of consistent and experienced counsel.
The mentorship program will include a retreat for the 10 participants and their mentors to set personal and professional goals, explore shared challenges and begin the development of an ongoing network of peer support. You can apply for the SMUG QUCHU Leadership Academy here.
