Feminist Leadership for Capabilities, Ecology and Transformation

Women leaders across the globe are dealing with dispossession from resources, capabilities, and a form of discursive 'development' which is deeply rooted in a capitalist and patriarchal order. In the current milieu - as women leaders face further marginalization, cultural exclusivity, and the Covid-19 pandemic - we offer this online discourse hinged on power, patriarchy, and justice to support and facilitate a process of enhanced critical thinking and alternatives towards feminist ecological justice. This course aims to inspire and empower you - women leaders across the world - to engage in purposeful and justice-oriented leadership, and to design ways to inculcate processes, systems, and structures towards the above issues in the communities you are engaged with. Apart from leading towards a better world, and taking on leadership with more content, strategies, and with more conviction and confidence, the course is geared to improving our homes, workplaces, societies, and states. In this seven-week course, we will focus on a political understanding of gender, power, and patriarchy in the current milieu. We will also delve into leadership not just as a discourse but also as a lived alternative. We will work to understand, critique, and explore various progressive alternatives of change and justice. We will look into various leadership models and draw lessons from the feminist movement.
