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

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.

High Level Interactive Panel, Case Studies, Roundtable, Innovation Festival,
