Giving Voice to Values – Africa


Build confidence and competence for values-driven leadership

The GVV Africa Project is an initiative under the Education Collaborative’s ethics and leadership focus area.

The Giving Voice to Values Africa course is designed for:

  • Corporate leaders and managers
    Values-driven leaders looking for a strategic approach to communicating their values and sustaining workplace cultures where employees feel comfortable speaking about values and bringing up issues of concern.
  • Higher education leaders and professionals
    Educators interested in equipping themselves, staff, faculty, and students, with the skills to support speaking and acting with integrity and sustaining university-wide cultures that encourage speaking about values and bringing up issues of concern.
  • Organizational trainers
    Ethics and leadership trainers seeking to gain skills for themselves and to train others to strategically and effectively speak up and act in values conflict situations; organizational trainers supporting culture change within large and small organizations.
  • Independent learners
