Measuring Leadership

Women Win has developed a theory of change that focuses on leadership and serves as a foundation for all our programmes and activities. Women Win defines leadership as the ability of a girl or young woman to exercise her rights and drive change.

We frame the changes in leadership based on a framework called B.A.C.K.S., which stands for Behaviour, Attitude, Condition, Knowledge, and Status. A foundational assumption of our definition is that leadership is a set of skills, behaviours, and attitudes that can be learned, practised, and refined through experience, mentorship, and education.
