Chairperson FUFA Judicial Commission attends Women in Football Leadership Programme

The Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) representative at the Women in Football Leadership Programme (WFLP) in Switzerland Dr. Taibu Azah is elated by the levels of football around the globe. The WFLP workshop is taking place this year from 6-10 March and will coincide with International Women’s Day on 8 March.

Dr. Azah was nominated by FUFA to take part in the programme after meeting the necessary requirements set for any participant to be enrolled for the workshop.   

She is the Chairperson of the FUFA Judicial Commission that supervises all activities of the FUFA Judicial Bodies.

The WFLP is designed for women in football who have the potential and motivation to progress into senior leadership positions within their organisation or are already in such roles.

Participants work on and discuss aspects of leadership, while also focusing heavily on self-awareness and how this can support their career development.

With the coaching included during the programme week, participants are challenged in both personal and professional aspects. Organised in collaboration with FIFA, the programme also provides a platform for exchange and networking between participants with a rich variety of backgrounds.

As part of the programme this year, which is a joint initiative with UEFA and delivered by IMD Business School, 36 women from all six confederations will come together this week to take part in the workshop.

In line with FIFA’s overall vision and strategy to develop and grow women’s football on and off the pitch, the workshop aims to be a learning platform for women working in football structures that will educate, empower and create a stronger network for female administrators in the game.

Dr. Azah speaks about the Programme

“Participating in the FIFA Women in leadership programme will go a long way in building my capacity as the Chairperson of the FUFA Judicial Bodies which will improve our judicial processes. I commend FIFA and FUFA for the Programme.”
