Learn more about Philia

The Global Philia Network is a community-driven platform for women from all over the world; including conflict and post-conflict settings. The Philia Project is all about learning, connecting and sharing. Events and lectures that we give are on topics such as “Empowering Conversations” and “Female Leadership in Conflict Zones“. Workshops and Seminars that last for a few hours or even over a sequence of several weeks are on Philia Peer Coaching related topics such as the art of listening and giving feedback and the development of a growth mindset and abundance thinking.


Philia values strong partnerships. We taught leadership workshops to female staff members at ehealth Africa, a Nigeria-based health organisation, to women that met weekly at the mindspace facilities in Berlin, Germany, to female students at the American University of Afghanistan as well as female entrepreneurs at Startup Valley, an incubation centre located in Kabul. Some of these initiatives were undertaken out of our own efforts and free for all participants to attend. We find it important that all women are free to join, if they find the Philia Leadership Programme useful.
