WHO WE ARE
Advancing Women in Leadership, Harnessing the Power Within.
HERS-EA provides intensive residential leadership and management development training focused on women, mainly in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and administration.
Higher Education Resource Services – East Africa (HERS-EA), is an educational non-profit organization advancing women leadership management in East Africa.
Established in 2014, HERS-EA is an affiliate of HERS based in Denver, USA and was established in 1972.
The goal of HERS-EA is to raise the proportion of women in leadership and management positions in higher education institutions (HEIs) in East Africa to at least 50%. HERS-EA’s main objectives are:
- To develop women leaders in HEIs in East Africa
- To empower women at multi-tiers of leadership and integrate the results to change systems.
The HERS-EA curriculum incorporates elements of the signature HERS curriculum but has been adapted and enhanced by the directors of HERS-EA as appropriate for the goals and needs of women in East Africa.
