Global Advocacy for African Affairs

4th African Women in Leadership and Public Service Summit-Gaborone,Botswana

It is a well-known fact that women are still under-represented at every level of the corporate ladder – non-management, middle and senior management with men holding the majority of senior level positions. Although the number of women in leadership positions may have risen, women do not necessarily have greater power as numbers do not necessarily equal influence. If Africa is to achieve gender equality, representation rates, however, still need to double. Whilst it’s clear that women are making significant strides towards equality, there is still a vast distance to go before all barriers can be erased.

On the strength of the above, we are pleased to invite you to participate in another bigger, inspiring, revealing and thought provoking experience at the 2020 African Women in Leadership and Public Service Summit with the theme “Beyond the Glass Ceiling 2” slated for 24-27 March, 2020 in Gaborone, Botswana. The forum is organized by First Strategy International, a leading brand in developing the theory and practice of leadership and professional strategies especially for women in positions of leadership in the public and corporate sectors, in partnership with the Global Advocacy for African Affairs.

This edition will bring together some of Africa’s foremost Public Sector female leaders and champions of change across a wide range of industries including Business, Government, Social Services, Healthcare, Media, Finance and Education among others to help promote progress and provide practical strategies for advancement to the next generation of female leaders. Attendees will learn how to stand out for opportunities, develop key leadership skills, make their value more visible and overcome various career obstacles, through anecdotal presentations, cutting-edge interactive sessions and engaging panels.

Key Highlights shall include; Keynote Presentations, High Level Interactive Panel, Case Studies, Roundtable, Innovation Festival, Working Visits, Networking , unveiling of 50 most outstanding African amazons in the public service and a VIP closing dinner on the last day of the summit.

First Strategy International (FSI), a frontline, gender empowerment and development-based organization and thought leader in the theory and practice of gender leadership, economic, social and professional strategies in strategic partnership with the Global Advocacy for African Affairs have continually shown commitment in inspiring a multilateral emancipation of women leaders in the new frontier- From  Washington to Kigali, London to Johannesburg, Paris to Dubai, Helsinki to Nairobi, Abuja etc, the goal has remained consistent i calling out African women leaders from all works of life to this more than ever strategic edition.
