Rohey Malick Lowe, Mayor of Banjul City Council (BCC), has completed a year of leadership training with the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative.
The Initiative is a collaboration between Bloomberg Philanthropies, Harvard Kennedy School, and Harvard Business School that equips mayors and senior city officials to tackle complex challenges in their cities and improve the quality of life of their residents.
In a Facebook post, Lowe said that the training has greatly improved her leadership abilities.
“Thank you, God, for allowing me to complete a year of leadership training with the Bloomberg Harvard City Leadership Initiative. This transforming journey has greatly improved my leadership abilities. Looking back on my first year in office in 2018, the road was not without difficulties. However, I have made significant growth in numerous aspects of leadership, such as communication, attentive listening, and effective decision-making, over time,” she said.
Lowe also extended gratitude to REFELA, Bloomberg Harvard, and the Banjul City Council for their support during the program.
