During her two weeks of "intellectual rest and recreation" as a Program Fellow for the TNGO Initiative, Nyradzayi Gumbonzvanda, Secretary General of the World Young Women's Christian Association (YWCA), researched the challenges of inter-generational, shared, and transformative leadership as a global movement as well as how it can be applied to the YWCA. 

Mrs. Gumbonzvanda gave two insightful and inspiring talks at The Maxwell School. In her first talk, Mrs. Gumbonzvanda took us through her career story, sharing with the group her path to becoming a global leader and her motivations for taking the position of Secretary General. Her second talk, titled "Inter-Generational, Shared and Transformative Leadership" addressed these approaches to leadership and their relation to women's rights.
