Leadership for COVID-19 Response and Recovery: Lessons Learned from the Field

Between July and December 2020 more than 50 participants and alumni of WLI’s leadership and mentoring program joined forces to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic in the Pacific. Fifteen teams of WLI participants and alumni worked to design and implement leadership initiatives with a COVID-related focus, across six Pacific countries (Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Nauru).

At this interactive online event, WLI teams will share their experiences and lessons from exercising leadership in the time of COVID-19. Through a mix of plenary discussion and small group activities, participants will have the opportunity to interact closely with WLI team members, staff and others present, reflect on the challenges and opportunities of exercising leadership in the time of COVID-19. Participants will also be invited to examine their own role as leaders in tackling development challenges in the COVID and post-COVID Pacific.
