WE Lead Graduation
The inaugural class of WE Lead scholars graduated from the 5-month program on March 21. WE Lead seeks to empower and equip women to become more effective leaders and to advance economic opportunity in their communities and countries.
The inaugural class of WE Lead scholars from Afghanistan, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and Tunisia were back in Dallas last week to present their personal leadership projects and complete the 5-month program. They celebrated their graduation with a Q&A session and dinner with President and Mrs. Bush.
While in the United States for Module 3, the scholars also spent time in Washington, D.C., visiting the Supreme Court, the White House Historical Association, and the U.S. Department of State.
