We are a global community promoting gender equality through leadership skills training and networking events.
We offer women empowering leadership and personal development workshops aimed at boosting leadership awareness and effective leadership practice.

HOW WE STARTED
In 2016, Aduke Onafowokan founded The Sister Sister Network to make leadership and personal development more accessible to women from all walks of life.

"..self-acceptance paves the way to leadership.

Aduke works with organisations to understand and manage the complex challenges of attracting and managing a diverse workforce and how to unlock the opportunities this presents.
With over 10 years of practical experience in Project Management, Training and Talent Development as well as scholarly expertise on leadership and gender from INSEAD and University of Oxford, Aduke's bespoke programmes help to develop leaders and leadership across cultures and backgrounds.
Through her body of work and in her personal life, she continues to contribute to the advancement of women, leadership and diversity.
