Calling all talented production companies. WILAN (Women in Leadership Advancement Network), a leading advocate for gender-balanced leadership in Nigeria, is seeking proposals from experienced production companies to develop Season 3 of its impactful TV show, The Leading Woman Show

About The Leading Woman Show 

This award-winning talk show tackles critical issues related to achieving gender equality in leadership positions. Through insightful conversations and diverse perspectives, the show aims to bridge the gap in Nigerians’ perception of women as leaders. 

Previous Seasons 

Season 1, the “Election Series,” focused on women’s political inclusion, while Season 2, the “Governance Series,” explored the dynamics of leadership and the importance of gender balance in shaping a better future. The show launched its debut season in 2022 and was tagged the Election Series ahead of the 2023 general elections. The show was a pioneer in focusing on the intersection of women and politics. 

With support from the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), the series aimed to shape public perceptions of the critical role of women’s leadership in the nation’s development. Covering topics from the hurdles of political involvement to challenging stereotypes, the show brought together influential figures, including legal practitioners, presidential aspirants, media personalities, and human rights activists. 

Our goal was clear: to address the deep-rooted issue of women’s underrepresentation in politics and leadership. You can binge-watch the entire season one here   

Following the success of Season 1, the show premiered Season 2 on January 14th, 2024. This season took a deep dive into women in governance and the persistent barriers hindering the ascent of women in governance in not just Nigeria but also Africa. You can watch season 2 here. Now we are gearing up for Season 3 and therefore seeking production partners
