What Will the Visiting Professionals Program Entail?
This is a competitive yearlong program for experienced and strongly motivated professionals who want to enhance their ability to improve women’s land rights in their countries or communities. Visiting professionals will work closely together and with Landesa staff to enhance their skills, expertise, and commitment to support each other by:
  • Participating in and contributing to substantive discussions;
  •  Sharing knowledge and expertise through presentations and informal conversations;
  • Working on leadership, managerial, and communication skills;
  •  Providing and receiving constructive feedback;
  • Benefiting from one year of dedicated mentoring;
  • Fostering the trust and ties that will lay the foundation for a sustainable women’s land rights network that can be a resource for those working in this field.
For the first six weeks, visiting professionals will be based at our main office in Seattle. Upon the visiting professionals’ return to their countries, they will continue to implement their projects under the mentorship of Landesa staff. We cover travel expenses and provide housing and a small stipend for the six weeks in Seattle.
