We believe that true leadership is not just about managing business, but about leading and inspiring people.
During this transformative journey, you will engage in co-creation exercises with a group of refugees, challenging you to break social barriers and build the right connections to lead the group to success. This experience fuels your self-reflection and understanding of connected leadership to build your personal leadership action plan.
As part of our social impact, we reserve 2 seats at cost for social entrepreneurs or non-profits in each leadership programme. Contact us to apply for these seats!
"Great immersive experience, great connection, super feedback of the Telenet participants, 100% impactful! Thanks StreetwiZe!"
"Our organisation believes in a leadership style that operates from equality, respect, and integrity. The hierarchical form of leadership, in which the leader must have all the knowledge, is limited in the current business world/culture. That is precisely why we have included the StreetwiZe Expedition in our Lead Smart Program because it challenges you to tap into those competencies. StreetwiZe offers us the opportunity to let future leaders collaborate with a target group that lies outside their comfort zone in a safe environment. In our opinion, it is the ideal way to sharpen your leadership skills."

Connected leaders acquire the essential skills to cultivate meaningful relationships, foster inclusivity, and inspire collaboration.
Refugees are empowered through collaboration and meaning. They feel valued and seen.
