FORBES WOMAN AFRICA leading Women Summit initiative in association with Mastercard will for the first time take place in Kigali, Rwanda on the 9th of August 2019. The announcement of this inaugural Forbes Woman Africa Regional Forum follows an unprecedented fourth edition of the same event that was hosted in Durban a few months ago with Supermodel, Philanthropist, Activist and Cultural Innovator Naomi Campbell.
This time around Forbes Africa Woman welcomes National Women’s Day in South Africa by bringing together 250 powerful women across East Africa in an effort to introduce these types of sought-after gatherings in the region.
“The FORBES WOMAN AFRICA Regional Forum will echo the same fervor and sentiment as the flagship Leading Women Summit but in hosting it for the first time in East Africa, what I am very keen on is coming face-to-face with the women who are at the top of their game in this region – the guests and speakers on the day will be luminaries you don’t want to miss meeting,”Renuka Methil, Managing Editor of Forbes Africa and Forbes Woman Africa.
In what aspires to have a similar impact and reach like the bigger annual Forbes Woman Africa Women Summits, Beatrice Cornacchia, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Communications, Mastercard Middle East and Africa is pleased that African women are celebrated for their role across the continent.
“African women are a force for economic growth and social change, and are playing a critical role in addressing the development challenges faced across the continent. As cultural and social dynamics shift, we are beginning to see an environment where women can flourish, and demonstrate the value they offer to every industry and sector in the economy. We are proud to partner with Forbes Africa and believe that this initiative will help to create opportunities for women to reach their greatest potential.”
A proudly Forbes Woman Africa Leading Women Summit initiative, a full-day, not-to-be-missed event, to debut in the East African nation in Kigali at the Serena Hotel will feature some of the exciting content FORBES WOMAN AFRICA has consistently won awards for.
