“Heart-full, spirited and wise-- three words which sum up each of the three Doyenne Fellows in the Doyenne Initiative’s inaugural class.”


Heart-full, spirited and wise-- three words which sum up each of the three Doyenne Fellows in the Doyenne Initiative’s inaugural class. are the words that might accurately describe each of Doyenne’s three fellows. Ketsiya Mundoga, Cilla Refinaldo and Tania Chongo were selected out of 100 interested applicants to Doyenne Initiative’s inaugural program focused on cultivating female leaders and experts, nee doyennes.


Doyenne’s inaugural program, the Doyenne Reliability Engineering Program (DREP) invited female Mozambican citizens to apply to a once in a lifetime opportunity to become experts and leaders in the impactful field of reliability engineering, a highly desired and germane field applicable in the contexts of energy, manufacturing, mining, agricultural processing and transportation among others. In a country on the verge of modernizing it’s infrastructure and developing it’s massive energy potential, Reliability Engineering was an obvious choice for Doyenne’s pilot program.


In looking for candidates, Doyenne sought not only high academic achievement and experience, but a social consciousness and intrinsic motivation to give back. In Ketsiya, Cilla and Tania, that is exactly what Doyenne found.
