Together we can end inequality

Africa has experienced strong, sustained economic growth since the early 2000s, spurring an undercurrent of change, including a continuing decline in poverty, the emergence of a middle class, massive urbanization, technological and industrial developments, and increasing receptiveness to public opinion. These improvements have made Africa the “last frontier” of globalization, but for transformation to truly take root on the continent, women need to play a leading role.

"For transformation to truly take root in Africa, women need to play a leading role."
Aude de Thuin

In September 2017, the first global forum for women's causes will be held in Africa. Women and men at the forefront of their field will travel from across the world to take part in the series of conferences on the agenda. The goals of the event are to showcase women’s successes and achievements, promote economic governance that incorporates women, and bring about solutions for the emancipation and empowerment of women, with a special focus on the economy and youth.

Women in Africa Club Annual Summit will be held in Marrakesh, Morocco. The WIA Club Annual Summit will welcome 60 speakers and 350 members from over 50 countries to exchange and partner together to drive new solutions for Africa's economic development through women. Together, we can end inequality.
