Welcome to March -
I love March because we get to celebrate women, and there are many in my life that I have to honour this month. I will be writing about them on my blog.
GHC – I have been honoured and privileged to be part of the group helping to select the next class of Global Health Corps – its a discovery of talent and passion and it is exciting. Towards the end of this month, we will have face to face interviews to hear the passion of these incoming fellows. As always, the new class is bigger and better, and I am excited about the new blood that is joining the movement for Health Equity. As Global Health Corp Alumni Country President of the GHC Uganda Chapter, this is an exciting opportunity, because the Alumni Corp will have a new class join us in 5 months.
GHC alumni are critical to the mission of mobilising a community of emerging leaders to build the movement for health equity. Given GHC’s growth trajectory, there are now more alumni than fellows, providing an amazing opportunity for us to harness our collective experience and determine how we can best work towards improving the health of those most in need, both in our own countries and beyond.
March will see Mentors’ Meet, Alumni Professional Development and 5-aside soccer team playing at the 4040 event.
FOSSFA – On 25th February, I was nominated to serve the FOSSFA Council and Executive in the capacity of Secretary – this will be my 3rd term on the FOSSFA Council and 2nd term on the Executive. I will continue to add my voice to the promotion and advocacy for Free and Open Source Software, in Uganda, and indeed in Africa. The work of FOSSFA remains dear to me, and I will continue to remain active in my support of the mission of the foundation.
Important to us this term is a successful #Idlelo7 in Southern Africa and also rejuvenating FOSSFA’s mandate on the continent.
LEADERSHIP - I feel very strongly that I am on a learning path to hone my leadership skills. This month I will continue to read John Maxwell, participate in board meetings. I am at the helm of a continent wide organisation and I cant believe how unskilled and unschooled I was when i first accepted to be the leader. Perhaps I am rediscovering myself and I am eternally honored to have people who believe in my leadership skills.
What else is on my radar?
MBA Semester 2 is on – .
As always, I place my thoughts on the Blog page, you are welcome to read along.
