THE Winihin Jemide Series (WJS) is a Nigerian-based organization, which was created to propel increased participation of women in government, politics as well as industry in Africa.

WJS has created two primary initiatives to achieve its objectives namely – GEED (Gender Emergence and Economic Development Forum) and YEDA (Youth Experience Days Africa).

Whereas GEED hosts conferences, seminars and workshops that promote conversations and actions to demonstrate the intricate link between gender emergence and sustainable economic growth; and it is now poised to release a series of research papers that demonstrate this link in conjunction with international organisations, YEDA, on the other hand, is an initiative designed to inspire youth and spur a passion in them to be the change Africa needs. Recently, and in conjunction with the African Studies Center at University of Oxford, WJS established a research grant. The grant offers funding to two graduate students per year for research on gender and politics in Africa.
