ABOUT US

WOMEN IN AFRICA

LEADING PLATFORM DEDICATED TO THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND SUPPORT OF LEADING AND HIGH POTENTIAL AFRICAN WOMEN

WHY ?

  •  The future of Africa is one of the major global issues of the century.
  •  Women have played – and want to play – a major role in the necessary transformation of this central and global continent, where all the contemporary challenges collide.
  • Although resilient, supportive and determined, they still have difficulty accessing education, funding and leadership positions 

  • Gender inequality costs Africa $ 95 billion a year, that is 6% of the continent’s GDP.
