Duke Leadership Program Hosts Black Management Forum Executives
October 17, 2012
For the third year in a row, Fuqua partnered with Duke Corporate Education's South Africa office and the Black Management Forum (BMF) to offer education fellowships to deserving members of the BMF. The BMF is a non-racial, thought leadership organization founded in 1976, with the main purpose of influencing socio-economic transformation in South Africa. After a rigorous application review process, Fuqua recently awarded full tuition fellowships to the Duke Leadership Program (DLP) to two high potential BMF members currently working in South Africa.
The 2012 fellowship winners, Thandi Ngwane, Allan Gray (Pty) Ltd, and Mabore Mabel Selepe, Protea Coin Group, attended the October session of DLP and cited the practicality of the framework, the actionable learning outcomes and the impact their experience and newfound knowledge will have in both their workplaces and communities.
"DLP enabled me to identify strengths and weaknesses as a leader. I constructed a personal development plan which is complemented by an action plan with real milestones and measurements that I can use in the workplace. I am leaving the program with a clear idea of how I can improve the quality of my relationships with my direct reports and supervisors and how to remove barriers that will inspire greater innovation."
Thandi Ngwane, Head of Emerging Markets, Allan Gray (Pty) Ltd
"DLP has equipped me with leadership tools that will propel me to think about how my behavior as a leader influences performance and how to provoke initiative form my team and colleagues. These skills are not only valuable for my organization, but also apply to my work as a community activist. I am grateful for the privilege to attend this course and share experiences with business leaders from other parts of the world."
Mabore Mabel Selepe, Skills Development General Manager, Protea Coin Group
