WOMEN IN BUSINESS INITIATIVE

The AFRICA CEO FORUM has been engaged in promoting African women’s leadership.

 

ABOUT OUR INITIATIVE

A true high point of the Forum since 2016, each year, the Women in Business initiative brings together 250 of the most influential women leaders in Africa. Through high level panels, inspiring testimonials, and networking sessions, the Women in Business initiative aims to increase the representation of women in decision-making roles across the continent, with the firm belief that women leaders of today and tomorrow are one of the keys to Africa’s economic development.

 

OUR MAIN PROJECTS

The annual Women in Business Leadership MeetingThe first edition of this meeting took place in Paris on 2 and 3 July  2018 and was attended by close to 200 influential women leaders from 32 countries.

The Women in Business Network: This first regional network of influence dedicated exclusively to facilitating interaction between women business leaders in Africa was established following the first Women in Business Leadership Meeting. The network is made up of six regions managed by two women leaders. Each region will organize quarterly networking events and launch one flagship initiative to support women’s leadership.
