Celebrating and Uplifting Women* Leaders

Across the  World.

We at Open Dreams believe that women are our past, our present, and our future.

We know that women across the globe, work tirelessly everyday

to push for change, solve the world’s stickiest problems, raise our families, and uplift our communities with purpose, loving care, and continuous commitment.

Yet, we also recognize that our systems have not been designed by or for us and that these systems often purposefully seek to hold us down or erase us from history. If we are not careful or aware of their impact, we may digest and internalize these negative societal and familial messages of what we can or can’t accomplish as women.

And sometimes we even end up holding our own selves back.

So we developed our She Shines LeadHership programs to celebrate, uplift, and strengthen our power and confidence as women to make the changes we want to see in our lives and our communities. 
We aim to spotlight and highlight the tremendous work that current and aspiring women leaders and entrepreneurs are doing all over the world.


Together, let us seek to be the change we want to see in the world.

And let’s doing something radical in the process  - 

try be our own best friends and greatest advocates .

Shining Leadhers

Our Shining Leadhers Program is a confidence and skills building program for current and aspiring women leaders and entrepreneurs.
 Taking place over 3 months, the program combines live workshops  with one on one coaching from diverse, fully certified coaches, and individual buddy sessions with groups of up to 30 women.

Our workshops are taught by women entrepreneurs and certified coaches on such topics as taming the inner critic, identifying our values as leaders, and finding compassion for ourselves in moments of doubt and growth.  

Our Shining LeadHers Social Entrepreneurship Program also integrates a social entrepreneurship bootcamp where participants learn how to start, run, and manage their own social enterprise to make a change in their communities and earn an income! 

Our March Cohort has just begun, but register your interest now to join our in-person program in Yaounde and Bamenda this Fall.
