USAID’s mission in Zambia is at a unique moment in time with a significant number of women serving in leadership positions and directing the work that has immediate impact on the lives of people in the country. We reached out to a cadre of women who are on the frontlines and asked them to speak about their professional journeys to help encourage the continued diversity of future leaders in the development arena, and generate a deeper understanding that expertise, leadership, innovation, and passion are gender-neutral principles. We invite you to read their repsonses and hear their stories.
