Women from across the world have an untapped potential as a primary mover of greater development across the world. Their role is very crucial for increased development, but challenges remain. And so, significant reforms in economic, social, and political institutions must be made to create an enabling environment for women participation and empowerment. However, it appears that investments in human development are not readily translated to better economic and political outcomes for women. Women’s participation is also very important in advancing peace, unity and combating terrorism, which is a most serious threat to SD across the world. It has also been recognized that women have been largely excluded from the processes of conflict management and prevention and that their role is important in the achievement of lasting peace and security (UN, 2015). In general, women’s participation helps in accelerating resolution and countering terrorism while ensuring that women’s rights are protected.
The general theme of the journal is executive leadership and empowerment for future Women leaders. The journal aims to introduce a variety of perspectives on Women leadership and empowerment in the public and private sectors. We hoping the journal will help enable future Women leaders and decision makers to introduce fit-for-purpose leadership styles and approaches to their organisations. In doing so, the journal aims to help women acquire a comprehensive knowledge and practical experience about advanced leadership styles and approaches in alignment with the local needs and capabilities. In addition, future Women leaders and decision makers will learn effective techniques and approaches to make better choices within the context of their organizations, gather information and assess alternatives; they will also be able to make decisions and develop ways to implement those decisions to their organization’s effective transformation.
