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.
KEY ELEMENTS OF THE 2019 PROGRAM
- A panel discussion on women’s access to boardroom positions
- A workshop gathering 60 business leaders to co-create a company “Gender Leader”
- A networking cocktail for 100 women CEOs
- A “Gender Leader” award for the most proactive company in the field of gender equality
OUR MAIN PROJECTS
The annual Women in Business Leadership Meeting: The second edition of this meeting will take place in Paris on 17 and 18 June 2019 and will attend by close to 250 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.
