  • Suva

As of 2022, a total of 125 young women have graduated from the Emerging Leaders Forum Program (ELF) equipped with a knowledge and understanding of Feminism and Women’s Human Rights, Women in Leadership, Women & Culture and Religion, Women in Business, and Women & the Environment, Tourism, Media, Sexual and Reproductive Health, Investment and Poverty, Globalisation, Trade and with a deeper understanding of Violence Against Women.

The Intergenerational Women’s Leadership Programme (formally Young Women’s Leadership Programme) has hosted the ELF Programme since 2004 and these graduates have formed the Emerging Leaders Forum Alumni (ELFA).

The ELFA has also grown from strength to strength with an established Secretariat and the successful implementation of projects and advocacy campaigns in raising awareness on the needs of young women, adding a feminist critique and creating positive change in their communities.

This has also allowed for the young women graduates themselves to exert and practice their leadership in the coordination of the group and the committees entailed as well as in the implementation of the group various activities and campaigns.
