The participants learned about how to become leaders in their communities and how to find and maintain employment. During 3 days, the participants met Ambassador Graham Styles, Guinean women entrepreneurs and community leaders; discussed female leadership in Guinea and how to solve issues of concern to women in Guinea; and studied and practiced job search skills such as CV writing, networking and job interviews.
