Sister School Global Initiative

Western Positions Students for Future Global Leadership

In Fall 2021, Principal Michelle White launched a partnership with HRH Princess Dr. Moradeun Ogunlana, the founder of the Sister School Global Initiative (SSGI) Lagos, Nigeria. Western’s Sister School program helps our students to expand their understanding of diverse world cultures and preparation for future global leadership roles.
Princess Ogunlana is the founder and CEO of the Sister School Global Initiative through the African Women’s Health Project International as part of its seven adopted United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 2030.
The program features robust cultural exchange between students of the schools including collaborative virtual projects, one-on-one zoom conversations and a structured timed program to eventually include visiting and living in each other’s country. The Foundation will be supportive of the exchange and program needs.

Foundation board members dined with the Princess at the Center Club, learning new ways for Western students to expand their global leadership capacity. According to the Princess, “We believe individual relationships, sharing cross-cultural experiences and perspectives, are the key to personal maturity and women’s professional ascension…and as importantly, to a more harmonious world.”
